Parsley (Petroselinum crispum) is one of the most commonly used herbs in American cuisine. It is a member of the celery family and comes in two primary varieties: curly parsley and flat parsley. The name comes from the Greek words for rock and celery because this hardy plant grows easily among stonewalls and cliffs. Native to the Medittearan region, this plant has been cultivated for thousands of years and was used in Roman and Greek cuisine as a garnish and flavor enhancer.
Parsley is an excellent source of vitamin K and vitamin C.
