Parsley (Petroselinum sativum)

Persil. Umbellifer

Appears in

Biennial. Grows easily from seed, flowers in its second year and dies. Should, therefore, be planted every spring in a garden. Parsley roots, scraped and well washed, lend a very particular and delicate flavor to stews or court bouillons and, if possible, should be included in all bouquets garnis. The second-year plants, destined, in any case, to disappear, should be dug up for this use. The stems, whose presence adds nothing to chopped parsley, should also be added to bouquets garnis rather than being discarded.
