This green-leafed, grassy-tasting herb is a mainstay in a cook’s arsenal, used both as a fresh, go-to garnish and as a subtle
flavoring for sauces and soups.
How to Choose Parsley
Italian or flat-leaf parsley has a slight peppery taste and is much more flavorful than curly-leafed parsley. Look for bunches with firm stalks and dark green leaves with no traces of yellowing or signs of wilting. Dried parsley is no substitute for fresh, as it adds very little flavor to a dish.
How to Store Parsley
Wrap uncut stems in a damp paper towel, place inside a plastic bag, and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
