Parsley (Petroselinum crispum)


Uses: Culinary Herb, Vegetable, Garnish

Parts Used: Leaves

Garden parsley is a bright green biennial plant native to the central Mediterranean region. It is a good source of minerals like potassium, calcium, manganese, iron and magnesium. It is perhaps the richest herbal source of vitamin K. It has also established a role in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease patients by limiting neuronal damage in the brain. Leaf parsley comes in two forms flat-leaved and curly-leaved. The latter is often used as a garnish because of its pleasant decorative appearance however; do not overlook its value as a tasty addition to salads, vegetables – especially potatoes – and other dishes. A sprig of parsley is usually added to a bouquet garni - an herb bundle used to flavor stocks and sauces. Parsley is delicious sprinkled fresh or dried on a variety of foods.

For a table-ready sprinkle, you’ll find parsley in our tasty blend of Happy Bee Herbal Sprinkles and Blissful Tea Blend.
