Ogden Nash, the popular wit and poet, once wrote a lengthy, witty doggerel poem about herbs, of which the final line was “parsley is garsley.”
Obviously, Nash did not like parsley. But it is, for most of us, a flavorful addition to many foods and an attractive and nutritious garnish for others.
There is more to parsley than you might think.
The parsley family is large, and it includes many herbs, spices, carrots and celery.
