Parsley

< Back to Discover

Did You Know?
The Greeks used Parsley to crown victors at the Isthmian Games. It was also a symbol of death and scattered over tombs. The Romans were the first to use Parsley as food and ate it like lettuce. The Romans believed Parsley worn as wreaths around their necks prevented drunkenness. Parsley has always been linked to the occult. It was believed that the seed germinated slowly because it had to go down to the devil and back seven times before it would grow. An old saying goes ’Where Parsley thrives, the missus is master’.

Quality
Parsley should have a good fresh green colour, even leaf ps and a mild aroma.

Usage
Combine with breadcrumbs, grated cheese and garlic, then spoon into flat mushrooms, drizzle with olive oil and bake until golden. Mix with butter and lemon juice, then stir into cooked vegetables and new potatoes. Stir into white sauce just before serving. Stir fry carrots in a little butter and add garlic and Parsley. Delicious with fish. Sauté mushrooms in butter, garlic and a good tablespoon of Parsley. Recipes Lemon and Parsley Couscous, Egg Cocotte, Watercress, Potato, and Ginger Soup
