Avocado Leaves
Traditionally used throughout  Mexico to cook beans and mole, avocado leaf has a beautiful herbal, anise-like flavor. Add whole leaves to a pot of beans, rice or braises, or grind them to mix into sauces and rubs. Ours are harvested by hand and sun-dried by the Cruz family in Santiago Cuixtla, Oaxaca.

Avocado leaves are available à la carte or paired with our heirloom Oaxacan black beans.
USAGE+
For bean preparation, we recommend about 2 toasted avocado leaves per one pound of beans. Each jar should be enough for cooking anywhere between 5-10 lbs of beans, depending on your flavor preference! Each avocado leaf averages 4-5 inches in length.
Lightly toast the leaves in a pan to intensify their flavor.
