    Bay Leaf Conversion: Whole to Powdered

    One version of the S&G rub recipe calls for 10 bay leaves, another calls for 1 Tb dried crushed. I have powdered. Can someone please help me with the conversion? Thanks

    Sounds like a job for Google.

    FWIW, here's one conversion I found there:

    One fresh bay leaf = two dried bay leaves.
    One dried bay leaf = ¼ tsp ground bay leaves.
    One fresh bay leaf = ½ tsp ground bay leaves.



      How do you remove ground Bay Leaves at the end of the cook?

        If you are serious, the only reason to remove bay leaves is because they can become brittle and a choking hazard. The Bay, Indian, and California Laurel plants sold whole or powdered is not toxic. The similar English/Cherry/ Mountain laurel are toxic but those plants aren’t sold as a food ingredient in Western countries. So if you decide you have a laurel bush growing outside your house and think "I’ll use that instead of going to the store," just don’t. Buy the little jars.

        Donw "If you are serious"
        Of course, I am serious, PBR serious.
        That is good to know.

      Thanks, Kathryn, and right you are! I hadn't been able to find the answer when I posted my question. Thanks for your rapid reply--I'll be making the rub soon. And bbqluv, if you're serious with your question, I assume with a good spice grinder (I use the Cuisinart SG-10) you can grind them so fine you avoid the issue. Buying powdered accomplishes the same thing!
