Herbal Wisdom: Parsley

  1. Parsley is a commonly used culinary herb. There are parsley plants for sale in the supermarket that you can place in the kitchen window so that you can easily harvest some fresh parsley whenever you need it. Parsley is very often used as a garnish for dishes to add that little bit to the �i�. However, parsley is much more than a garnish. Two thousand years ago, parsley was best known for its healing properties. Over time these have fallen into obscurity and now no one really thinks about it. So, just as a reminder ...

The correct way to use

  1. It is important to know that parsley should never be cooked during the preparation. Firstly, it will taste bitter and the effect is no longer what it should be. In addition, parsley also turns brown when it is cooked with the lid on the pan. No, when you make soup, for example, sprinkle (preferably) fresh finely chopped parsley over the soup just before serving. That is the correct way to use and apply parsley. This does not only apply to the soup, but to all dishes to which parsley is added. The nutrients are then optimal for our body to absorb.

Save

  1. Not everyone always has a jar of fresh parsley in the kitchen, but did you know that you can also freeze parsley very easily? You can even keep it uncut in the freezer. When you need it, you can simply crumble the right amount of it. And of course there is the dried parsley that we probably all have in our kitchen cupboard. I personally harvest the parsley from my own herb garden, which I then let dry upside down in bunches, then crumble and store and use in a nice jar with a sticker. So there are plenty of options.

Grow it yourself

  1. Growing your own is so easy and fun too. You can sow parsley yourself if you have room and patience (because the germination time for parsley is quite long). Find a spot in the sun or partial shade for this. Start sowing at the end of winter, preferably in a greenhouse so that the plant (s) can go outside in the spring. You already have a head start. Of course you can also start sowing in the spring or during the summer and then directly in the garden. It is even easier when you buy those pots with plants that are already in full growth at the supermarket or at the garden center. Pruning is growing, so harvest the leaves regularly to promote growth. Use it fresh, dry it or freeze it. Everything is possible. You can use all parts of the plant. So leaves, stems, roots and seeds.

Health

  1. Believe it or not, parsley was cultivated in ancient times and used as a medicine and not as a flavor enhancer or garnish. At that time people already knew how healthy parsley, like all other types of herbs, was and also that it could strengthen your entire immune system. The great thing is that it was not researched and documented at the time. The information passed from person to person and no one questioned its truth. It just worked and that was enough. That has all become very different because today it has to be "proven" that a remedy works. Its only advantage and purpose is that it makes companies and people rich. The operation and result are still the same as in those old times.

And what is that effect?

  1. Parsley is a powerful detoxifier, has a diuretic effect and purifies the blood, so that all organs in our body are purified again.
