I was flipping through a Williams-Sonoma catalog (I can't believe the number of unsolicited catalogs we get this time of year. We'll get the same catalog from the same company but with a different cover page every 3 or 4 days. Catalogers should follow the no double-dipping credo - send once and end it.) and saw this photo and gasped.
I cook with bay leaves. One little 0.16 ounce jar lasts me about 6 months. The leaves in these decorations would last me a lifetime. I wonder if the folks who order them actually cook with them.
