Beans ❤ Bay leaf

Reason #19: pick some bay leaves and de-gas your beans

Bay leaf is very common here on Brač. Beans and lentils are also a common food here. You might already know this, but if you put the two together you’re gas free!

Pick the leaves. Leave them in the open to dry (spread on a shelf in the pantry, for example). Put one or two in the pot when you cook your beans. That’s it!

On Brač you can either grow your own, pick them in the wild, or get them from a neighbor’s bush. Just make sure that, like with anything, the neighbor is ok with this ;).
