The Culinary, Medicinal and Other
Benefits of Parsley Herb

It was the medicinal and health benefits of parsley (petroselinum crispum) folks were interested in when it was first cultivated in Greece, Italy and Northern Africa at least 2,000 years ago. It was only later on that its culinary appeal was appreciated.

Today it grows almost everywhere around the globe and it has a whole host of uses in the kitchen. Chop and sprinkle on your freshly cooked vegetables. Put some raw parsley in a sandwich, or your salad, or just throw some in a soup, stew or a parsley sauce.

You can juice it or even make a tea out of the fresh or dried leaves (recipe below). Or combine it with other herbs to make a bouquet garni or fines herbes.
