Italian Parsley

Product 1: 

Aromatic and flavorful, Italian parsley (also known as flat leaf parsley) has more flavor than the curly version, which is best known as a plate decoration in restaurants. Italian parsley is by far the preferred variety for cooking.

How to select and store Italian parsley

Choose bunches of Italian parsley with firm stems and bright green leaves that show no sign of wilting. Rinse and wrap in a paper towel, then place in a plastic bag; refrigerated, it can last for about a week. You can freeze fresh parsley, too. Just wash it, then chop and let dry; put it in the freezer in small plastic bags (ice trays with the small squares work well, too), sealed tightly to prevent freezer burn.

Tips on using Italian parsley

The leaves are most commonly used, but the stalks add great dimensional flavor to stocks. Italian parsley is a delicious partner to most foods, including chicken, eggplant, eggs, fish, game, lentils, mushrooms, mussels, pasta, peas, potatoes, poultry, rice, seafood, tomatoes, zucchini and lemon, to mention just a few.

Why choose organic Italian parsley?

Choose organic whenever you can to help keep the residues of conventional agricultural pesticides and fertilizers out of your food. At Earthbound Farm, we grow our Italian parsley without toxic synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, using sustainable farming methods that protect the environment and help keep pesticides out of our soil, air, water and food supply. Organic food is the healthiest choice for people and the planet — and we think organic tastes better, too!
