How do you cook parsley?

User Avatar
Step 1 Wash parsley thoroughly before using. Let them soak in a dish of water and then stir them to dislodge dirt. Another method is to put the herbs in a colander under a high-pressure spray. Step 2 Choose curly or flat leaf parsley. The flat leaf has more flavor. It's sometimes called "Italian" leaf. Step 3 Chop parsley for use in dishes. Use only the stems to add flavor to a sauce if you don't want the green bits of parsley to show. Step 4 Adding parsley to a dish when it's nearly cooked ensures that the flavor of the herb will remain. Add it too early, and the flavor may evaporate or get lost amidst other flavors. Step 5 Some meat dishes, like rack of lamb, call for parsley in "persillade," which is basically chopped parsley with garlic (in a 50-50 mixture) and bread crumbs. Use this to coat the meat toward the end of the cooking process.

Can you use parsley instead of basil?

User Avatar
It won't give the same flavor, at all. Parsley is very mild and not very aromatic. You might want to combine it with oregano, thyme and/or marjoram to get more flavor and aroma.

How do you dry parsley?

User Avatar
Step 1 Wash the parsley thoroughly and drain off the excess water in a colander. Shake off as much water as possible, then gently pat the parsley dry with paper towels or dish towels. Step 2 Bunch the parsley loosely and place it inside a brown paper bag. Fold the top of the bag over so that it closes but does not crush the parsley. Put this bag in the refrigerator. Step 3 Allow the parsley to dry in the refrigerator for about a month. At cold temperatures, the herbs will still dry nicely but they will retain the greatest amount of their original color and flavor. Step 4 When the parsley is dry and ready to use, just roll the leaves back and forth between your fingers to crush them up and sprinkle them in or on dishes. Store the unused portion in the same paper bag in the refrigerator until completely consumed

How much fresh parsley is equal to 1 teaspoon dried parsley?

User Avatar
At least 3 times the dried amount, therefore 1 t dried = 1 T (tablespoon) fresh, chopped, packed. But this amount can be varied according to taste.

Asked in Parsley

Are chervil and Italian parsley the same thing?

User Avatar
No, chervil [Anthriscus cerefolium] and Italian parsley aren't the same thing. Chervil isn't a parsley, but a parsley relative. Italian parsley [Petroselinum neapolitanum] is the flat leaf variety, as opposed to the curly leaf [Petroselinum crispum].

Parsley is a herb and a good provider of vitamin C, it has many uses in the kitchen, parsley sauce is great with fish, its also commonly used as a garnish and a good breath freshener too! I feed then to my guinea-pigs and use them in salads all the time! Make sure you wash and check them for bugs first though!

Asked in Parsley

How do you identify the type of parsley plant in your garden?

User Avatar
The types of parsley I'm familiar with are the Italian or French parsley with its flat leaves that look a bit like celery leaves, and the 'normal' curled parsley with its dense finely cut and curled leaves. The Italian parsley is more strongly flavored than the curled, and grows taller when mature. Take a look at the Related Link under the blue box at the left for a photo of the two main types.

Asked in Parsley

Can I grow a parsley plant from dried parsley flakes?

User Avatar
No,the parsley that is dried comes from the leaves of the plant,but you need the seeds to grow new plants.The seed stalk comes up above the plant in an umbrella shape.Commercial parsley would never be allowed to grow to this stage anyway,so it would be impossible to grow new plants from any parsley leaves,dried or fresh.

Parsley is the leaf and stem of the plant with the same name. Its easy to grow and makes Italian dishes and seafood so much tastier.
Asked in Parsley, Coriander

What is the distinction between coriander and parsley?

User Avatar
Coriander is actually part of the parsley family. Its leaves (technically called cilantro) have a stronger, more distinctive flavor that can dominate a dish (as opposed to plain, or Italian parsley, that is more mild). For many, it's an acquired taste -- some people feel it tastes like soap. In addition, coriander seeds (really the mature, dried fruit) are used as a separate spice (tasting nothing like the leaves), generally ground and served in Middle Eastern dishes along with spices like Cumin.
