Herbs

Parsley can be used either fresh or dried and brings a certain freshness to dishes that cannot be duplicated by any other herb. Parsley is most commonly grown in California and is used mainly as a garnish or breath freshener due to the crisp clean flavor it possesses. It is rich in vitamins A and C, and contains iron, copper and iodine.

Europeans believed that by plucking a sprig of parsley while speaking an enemy’s name, death would become them.

Dried parsley is very light: 1 ounce contains almost 2 cups fresh by volume. Parsley is preferred for garnishing soups, salads, meats, vegetables and sauces. It is the most widely used culinary herb in the United States.
