Not only is parsley a source of vitamins and antioxidants but also has health benefits. Parsley has breast cancer protection, fights inflammation, strengthens bones, and helps with digestion.
To harvest parsley, you need scissors because like other herbs parsley likes to be snipped. When harvesting parsley grab a handful of parsley then you snip at ground level.
Parsley stems have a stronger flavor than the leaves. Add chopped parsley at the end of cooking for a burst of freshness.
