Bay leaves, to eat or not?

BluPlateSpec | Jan 27, 2011 05:29 PM

I've always heard that your have to remove bay leaves after preparing food, before they can be eaten. They never soften and could possibly get stuck in a person throat and injure them. But I've been served restaurant food containing intact bay leaves. So what's a cook to do?
