Bay Laurel Leaf Creme Brulee

Out on the patio is a little bay leaf tree I bought about 4 or 5 years ago.  It spends from the first warm days until it starts dipping into the low 40s outside, then I drag it into the garage for the winter.  It sits next to the one of the garage doors and every warm winter day (we can get into the 70s in January in TN) I push it out for some sun and water and drag it back in in the evening.

It has rewarded me with fantastic growth.  This year it has been really pleased because it has really taken off.  

So I decided it was time to make some of my bay leaf creme brulee.

And since it is sooooo good, I'm going to share the recipe.  (I snap a photo of the page out of my recipe notebook as I can't find it in my files on my computer.)


  1. wow, this is a first for me, I love it. Looks so good saw at Foodie Friday. Is this the bay tree that grows in the south?

    1. I'm not sure what sort of bay you are speaking of, there are several types of bay. The tree I have is the classical type...Lauras nobilus. The sort you buy in the spice section. It's not hardy to TN and I have to drag its fussy self into the garage every winter. Fortunately we have warm spells all winter and I drag it out for some sun when we do.
