Flavor: A greener, sweeter version of cilantro, parsley can impart a sweet, rich and savory freshness.
Benefits: Known to sweeten breath, due to the high chlorophyll content, and aid digestion. Highly nutritious even in small quantities, parsley contains vitamins K, C, and A, as well as folate, and iron.
Storage: Wash thoroughly, do not dry, and place parsley in a resealable storage bag or container in the refrigerator. If your parsley begins to dry out, sprinkle it with water and wrap in a damp paper towel, before placing it back into the storage bag.
Cooking and Preparation: Wash parsley sprigs thoroughly, as the leaves may be sandy. Remove the leaves from the stems by hand and use as directed in recipes. Great as an addition to salad greens, sprinkled into soups and sauces or as a flavoring for dips and spreads.
