PARSLEY

PARSLEY: 

Also Known As: Rock Selinon

HISTORY:

Parsley is nutritious and is a great effective after dinner breath freshener. Parsley is one of the first herbs to appear in the spring time.  

The Romans munched on parsley sprigs at banquets as a breath freshener. This is how the origin of adding parsley as a garnish on restaurant plates came about today.
