Parsley can be limited by its frequent use as a garnish. Featuring a milder, sweeter taste than other herbs like cilantro, it complements many different dishes as a featured ingredient. Parsley is a good source of vitamin C and is low in calories.

Parsley is a biennial plant, meaning its life cycle can take up to two years in milder climates. It flowers in its second year.

Handling Tips

When shopping, choose parsley with bright green leaves and firm stems. Wash and discard any aging leaves, pat dry and store in a plastic bag in your fridge’s veggie crisper for up to a week. If you want to store parsley for up to a year, freeze its leaves. Add parsley as the final ingredient to your culinary concoctions for flavor and fragrance.

Rinse Before using
Store at 34-38° F
