Using dried bay leave in place of fresh


Roughly how many dried bay leaves should be used per fresh bay leaf called for in a recipe to have a similar effect?

  1. Because dried herbs tend to be stronger than fresh herbs, I'd use about half as many. But it the dried leaves have been stored longer than 6 months I'd substitute them for the fresh 1:1.
