Parsley was cultivated as early as the third century BC. The Romans used Parsley as a garnish and flavouring. They put it on their tables and around their necks in the belief the leaves would absorb fumes.
An infamous French herb, Parsley's gentle flavour and ability to blend with the flavours around it make it a versatile herb. Use to season dips, salad dressings, stuffings, sauces, gravies, and potatoes.
