Many of us are used to thinking of parsley simply as a garnish on the side of our plates.  Some of you may be surprised to learn that not only does it offer us wonderful flavor and rich color, but also outstanding nutrition!  Extremely high in vitamins A and C, it is also high in minerals, especially iron.

To store, simply wrap parsley in a damp towel and refrigerate in the hydrator drawer.  Or place it upright in a container with an inch of water and refrigerate.

To prepare, rinse under cold running water and blot dry.  Add it into a green salad with your other greens.  Try chopping it into your chilled pasta or vegetable salads.  It adds a beautiful color to stir-fries; to retain the color, flavor, and nutrients, remember to add toward the very end of cooking time.  Fresh parsley is an excellent flavor addition to soups or stews.  Again, it is best to add it toward the end after cooking is completed.  And don’t forget to add fresh or dried parsley to your homemade tomato sauce, for spaghetti or lasagna.  Finally, if used as a garnish, eat it at the end of your meal–it will serve as a breath freshener!
