About Dried Parsley Flakes
Dried parsley is a popular herb in many kitchens around the world. It’s often tasked with bringing the other flavors in a recipe to life. Dried parsley flakes have a subtle, slightly bitter flavor — just that little “something” that’s needed to brighten any dish right before serving.
Dried parsley can be used in various meat dishes, egg recipes, soups, stews, pasta sauces, and casseroles. It’s a wonderful addition to any roast or potato dish. It’s also a key ingredient in Middle Eastern recipes such as hummus and tabbouleh.
Fresh parsley vs dried parsley: a good rule to follow — use a third of the amount of dried parsley in relation to the amount of fresh parsley the recipe calls for. Dried herbs have a concentrated flavor, so less is needed to achieve your result.
About the parsley plant:The parsley plant is a flowering herb native to the Mediterranean, now produced worldwide. There are two species of parsley — the widely cultivated garden parsley and the much less common corn parsley.
Garden parsley is a biennial plant in temperate climates; an annual herb in more tropical regions. It grows to be about 2.5ft tall with yellowish-green flowers.
Within the garden parsley species, there are many cultivars but the two main groups used as herbs are curly leaf parsley and flat leaf parsley (or Italian parsley). This product is made from a curly leaf Egyptian grown garden parsley.
