History

The Greeks believed the god Hercules chose parsley for his garlands, and consequently it was woven into crowns for victors in the athletic games. Pliny considered parsley one of the most important medicinal herbs of his time. Parsley is believed to be indigenous to Sardinia, Turkey, Algeria, and Lebanon where it can still be found growing wild.

    I could not live without this parsley. I use it in most things I cook. It has the right flavor, also is great in pesto.
