Bay or laurel (Laurus nobilis) is a hardy species that is characteristic of Mediterranean areas but is also adapted to cooler climates. It is an evergreen plant and dioecious, that is, with male and female flowers on separate plants. Laurel’s properties are due to its rich content of essential oils, found in the berries and leaves. Bay leaves are particularly rich in beneficial principles and aromatic essences especially when harvested during winter and early spring. Precisely for this reason, our laurel, which grows wild in the Madonie Park area. Is mainly harvested in Spring and dried in the shade so that its properties are preserved. The leaves are used to impart flavor to various meat, fish and legume dishes. They are used to flavor vegetables and mushrooms in oil and vinegar.
