Help! Madeiran Pork with Wine and Garlic (Carne Vinha d'Ahlos) recipe isn't clear!

Was getting ready to go gather the ingredients to start marinating this lovely looking recipe, and realized that the recipe isn't specific about the bay leaves. Dried or fresh? Totally different flavor profile! Anyone have a clue?

I would assume dried since there's 10(!) of them and that seems like it would be a lot of fresh leaves, but I also see that the recipe specifically calls for dried oregano so now I'm not sure.

I'm looking forward to trying this recipe, so I don't want to muck it up.

  • Hi Gregory - Our recipes assume dried bay leaves when we call for bay leaves. If we call for fresh bay leaves we will explicitly call for them. Best, Lynn C.
