Parsley, Curly

(Parsley, Curly)  We have not found  much difference between the flavors of curly and straight parsley.  We generally buy whichever is fresher and less expensive; however, this curly variety is more decorative, if that is a factor.  Select crisp bunches (not wilted) with a bright green color.  We eat curly parsley raw in our salads, in our raw vegetable smoothies, or cooked in various dishes for added flavor.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-8)
