Product Information

PRODUCT INFO

Italian parsley (aka flat leaf parsley) has a stronger flavor than more common curly parsley. While most Americans see parsley purely as a garnish, it is considered an essential ingredient in many European and Middle Eastern cuisines for its palate-cleansing, herby-bitter flavor.

This bulk Italian parsley is fine-dining restaurant quality, so it is fresher and higher quality than the fresh herbs found in most grocery stores.

STORAGE

Storage:

Store flat-leaf parsley in a zip-top bag in your refrigerator crisper.



For long term storage of parsley, we recommend blending it into a paste with olive oil and freezing it in your smallest ice cube trays, though you could also try freezing whole sprigs following the instructions in How to Freeze Better at Home.

Shelf Life:

Up to a week fresh.

RECIPES & TIPS

Fresh flat leaf parsley works well with most other herbs, including, fresh chervil, tarragon, rosemary, sage, and chives. This makes it a great foundation for herb salads, infused herb oils, gremolata, and herb/breadcrumb blends used encrust racks or chops.

Other flavors parsley pairs with include poultry, fish, live mussels, mushrooms, potatoes, game meats, lentils, carrots, capers, cauliflower, shallots & eggs.

Parsley can be briefly deep-fried in 350 degree oil, which crisps it up while turning it translucent green and accentuating its flavor, making this a favorite trick for chefs looking to take their herb garnishes in a new direction.
