Hi there, I was wondering whether it would be ok to cook with laurel berries as you would with cedar, juniper berries etc. I was thinking maybe using them in a brine or in a sauce and then discarding them. I just recently cut some from a tree near by and realized that they have the most wonderful aroma; scent. I can also say that it very much resembles the juniper scent. I live in athens, Greece if that makes any difference in the type of berry regionally. Thank you!
