Taste and Aroma
“Fresh” is the word most often used to describe parsley’s taste, but it’s also slightly peppery and almost anise-like when used by itself to season dishes.
Quick Kitchen Tips
Store parsley in a cool, dark place. Buy the amount that you think you will be able to use within six months.
1 teaspoon dried parsley = 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
How to use when cooking:
Parsley is often paired with other seasonings to round them out and deepen their flavors; parsley’s milder, sweeter flavor won’t interfere with the flavor of most herbs, rather, it enhances them.
Add dried parsley at the end of cooking time for maximum flavor.
