What Parsley herb Is:
Parsley is a perennial... table scrap. According to some estimates, at least 90 percent of all parsley sprigs used to garnish restaurant meals are left untouched and tossed in the trash. Diners apparently prefer the breath mints often available next to the cash register to nature's own breath of fresh air. This disrespect is a far cry from the days of ancient Greece, when athletes were adorned with parsley crowns and tombs were decorated with parsley wreaths. Back then, the herb was too revered to be put on a plate and eaten. Since then, this carrot-family member has become a familiar flavoring in soups, sauces, and stews, not to mention a nearly ubiquitous garnish.
One of the most commonly used culinary herbs, parsley also has medicinal uses due to its diuretic action.
Parsley is used to treat urinary infections and stones. It is also used to improve digestion and treat flatulence.
Parsley should not be used in medicinal doses during pregnancy.
