Indonesian Bay Leaf

    25 responses

Sort:
Millmud starts with ...
Does anyone know where I can purchase an Indonesian Bay leaf plant? Other names are Duan Salam, or Salam Leaf. It is used in Indonesian cooking, and is NOT the same as the Bay leaf we know here.
Botanical name is Eugenia or Syzygium Polyanthum.

Indonesian bay leaf is a rather exotic spice and not easily available in the West (only in countries with a high proportion of Indonesians). The leaves may be used fresh or dried; they are common in the cuisines of Sumatra, Jawa and even more Bali. They are applied to meat and, to a lesser extent, vegetables; in order to release their flavour, they must be fried or cooked for a while.
A wealth of different ingredients, cooking methods and flavourings is found in the various cooking traditions of Indonesia. All over the country, the use of lemon grass, greater galanga, fresh ginger, garlic and chiles is common; yet regionally, spice usage may expand this list considerably.
The cuisine of Bali is distinguished from cooking in other parts of Indonesia by a multitude of spices and flavourings not or comparatively rarely found on the other islands. A characteristic feature of Balinese cooking is the preference of fresh rhizomes ground to a paste (jangkap); besides ginger and greater galangale mentioned above, Balinese cooks make heavy use of lesser galangale and fresh turmeric. Furthermore, lemon grass, kaffir lime, pandanus leaves and the Indonesian bay-leaf are used in higher quantities than, for instance, on Jawa; the Balinese long pepper even seems to be unknown in the rest of Indonesia. Another flavouring much liked by the Balinese (and the Jawanese) is trassi (also spelled terasi), a pungent and strong-smelling paste of fermented shrimps; in Bali, it is even employed for fruit salad (rujak, see mango).
The remarkable variety of the food traditions in Indonesia has, in part, religious roots: Contrasting the Muslim majority of Indonesia, the Balinese are Hindus, and, therefore, Islāmic food restrictions do not apply to them. Babi guling (roast suckling pig) is a kind of national dish in Bali; it seems reasonable to develop a more spicy cuisine when dealing with pork frequently. For another typical Balinese recipe, see lesser galanga. For examples of cooking in other regions of Indonesia, see lemon grass (general), greater galangale (Sumatra), tamarind (Jawa) and coconut (Sulawesi).

Hi Trikus,

I was wondering you and your mate can air layer the tree, it would be fantastic, seeing there's market for it.

Please let me know if you would consider this method of propagating.

Thank you.
Regards,
Santi.
