Hamburg Root Parsley
Unusual Old World parsley with a tender, edible 8-10" long tuber; up to 2" diameter root. Very similar to parsnip. The thick, fleshy, creamy-white roots taste like a combination of celery and parsley with a nutty flavor.
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.
It is considered essential for soups and stews in Eastern Mediterranean cooking. It may also be thinly sliced or grated to eat raw in salads, and roasted, mashed, fried, or made into chips. The young leaves are used as soup greens and can also be chopped and added to salads or used as a garnish. Also, used as a breath freshener, digestive aid and in tea to treat high blood pressure and rheumatism.
