PS: Eager Beavers may enjoy the following additional information:

BUYING TIPS:

  • You can get two types of parsley: the flat-leaf parsley (Italian, stronger flavor) or the curly leaf parsley (mild flavor).
  • Choose fresh parsley with no signs of wilting.

STORING TIPS:

  • Keep fresh parsley in the fridge in a perforated plastic bag for up to one week.
  • Curly leaf parsley is best preserved by freezing as opposed to drying.
  • If you have excess of flat leaf parsley, dry it by laying it out in a single layer on a clean kitchen cloth and store in a dark, cool place in a tightly sealed container.

SERVING IDEAS:

  • Juice parsley with other vegetables. 
  • Chopped parsley can be added to fresh salads, soups, and steamed vegetable dishes.
  • Add parsley to pesto sauce for extra green color and texture.
  • Combine chopped parsley, garlic, and lemon zest and use it as a rub for chicken, lamb or beef.

BE MINDFUL:

  • Pregnant women may like to avoid consuming large amounts of parsley as it stimulates the uterus and can, therefore, induce uterine contractions.
