Using dried bay leave in place of fresh

Hello,

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

Thanks,

Dan

  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.

    1. Todao has you covered.
