      I don't know if there's anyone who can help a sister out, but I'm looking for laurel fruit oil for… a thing I'm doing. Laurel fruit is also called bay berry or bay laurel fruit; I'm looking specifically for the fruit of the Laurus Nobilis, and no other type of laurel tree fruit will do.

      Not the essential oil that sells for $3 to $9 per half-ounce.

      Not the fragrance oil that sells for $3 to $9 per half-ounce.

      I'm talking about the WHOLE oil from the WHOLE fruit, pressed just like an olive or any other oil-granting fruit, and I need about a liter and a half of the stuff.

      Can anyone point me to a source, without my having to walk to Syria and go begging?

        I might suggest asking on a cooking group? The people there might know
        where and how to find it. My thought is that food grade oils are less
        likely to be just the extracts etc you don't want. That or contact an SCA
        group type that would most likely be closest to the purpose you would be
        using it for

        My quick search for food grade oil using the two names you gave, didn't
        turn anything up so at least here in the USA it seems to be rather unusual.
        Nothing new for scadians.

        Best of luck.

          Thanks, good m'lord Ian! I hadn't thought of that, for sure. Sadly, the relevant SCA email group seems to be inactive for months if not years, other than some seriously disturbing spam emails, but I'm asking around relevant non-SCA groups. We'll see what happens.

            From what I could see in my research, you may find it difficult to locate a local source, other than specialty import companies.  The plant is not native to North America, and pretty much the only area that does have it is the eastern Med.  Also, it seems that the leaves are used for oil extraction, more so than the berries, it while used in cooking, it is also used for soap making (for scent I guess).What are you making that requires so much?

                If you would like to grow your own, I have found a website for you to look
                into that and I will post it below.
                The next site is a place where you can buy the plant or the seeds, whatever
                you wish.

                I have only found a bottle of oil for $10. The plant is the closet I've
                come to finding the berries besides reading about them and that was very
                informative. The last website is what I learned about the Laurel Fruit.

                I hope something here helps.
                Have a great day!

                    Or you go to an SCA event, find a bunch of people who are really good at
                    A&S, grab the ones with medallions around their necks, and stuff them
                    into a press to make Laurel oil. They tend to squeal a lot when you do
                    this, though, so you might want earplugs.

                        chicken can be found in that recipe. You start with 500g of Pelican,
                        then add 600mL of chicken stock. Well....duh! You've completely covered
                        up the natural Pelican flavor!

                        C'mon, people, show some respect! At least have the decency to cook us
                        *properly*. :P
