Parsley Recipes

Parsley is native to the Mediterranean region of Southern Europe. While it has been cultivated for more than 2,000 years, parsley was used medicinally prior to being consumed as a food. The ancient Greeks held parsley to be sacred, using it to not only adorn victors of athletic contests, but also for decorating the tombs of the deceased.
 
Nutrition: Parsley contains three times as much vitamin C as oranges, twice as much iron as spinach, is rich in vitamin A and contains folate, potassium and calcium. What’s more, parsley is also recognized for its cancer-fighting potential. Some of the potent chemicals in parsley include: Polyacetylenes, which seem to protect against certain cancer-causing substances found in tobacco smoke. It may also help to regulate the body's production of prostaglandin, which is a powerful tumor promoter. Coumarins, which help prevent blood clotting, reducing your risk of arterial blockages that can lead to heart attacks. Flavonoids, some of which act as anti-oxidants that neutralize dangerous free radicals, others that have been shown to prevent or slow the development of some cancers. Monoterpenes, which are thought to have cancer-delaying properties, especially with breast tumors, and to reduce cholesterol.
 
Like all our produce, our Parsley is grown using sustainable methods: lots of organic compost. Herbs tend to be naturally pest free, so they generally don't even require a soap spray in our garden beds.
