Parsley

Parsley

Parsley is a herb, a spice and a vegetable. It is in the carrot family.

It is native to the central Mediterranean region and naturalized elsewhere in Europe.

It is a biennial plant in temperate climates and annual in tropical climates. Parsley will flower in its second year. It is grown from seed and it takes about 4-6 weeks to germinate.

There are two groups of parsley used as a herb, the curly leaf (right in the picture above) and the flat leaf (Italian) parsley (left in the picture above). There is also a thick leaf parsley which resembles celery.

Curly parsley is used for garnish. Parsley is also used as a seasoning in stews, soups, meat and fish. Fresh parsley, wrapped in plastic, will keep in the fridge for up to a week.

Parsley has a lot of nutrients and contains vitamins A, B, C and K as well as mineral potassium, iron and copper.
