Stupid question alert - can you eat them raw ? Aren't they a bit woody ?

No question is stupid on this app Charlotte 😉... Well I ate it about half hour ago & I'm still here feeling fine 👌😁.. I love bay anyway, I put it in every meat dish I cook with so the temptation was tempting 😏 its not woody at all but soft and quite pleasant tasting👌 the taste of bay with a sweet hint to it @charlotte 🌻🌻🌻👌😉

I have a huge bay tree. I might just go and have a nibble on it. I guess you want a new leaf rather than an old one.
