Parsley (petroselinum crispum) is best known as a plate garnish whose use is not only decorative¸ but also works as an after-dinner breath mint to reduce mouth odor. This is due to Chlorophyll¸ abundant in fresh parsley¸ which does indeed absorb odors. Parsley is also a good source of iron and trace elements needed for good health. Parsley is one of the oldest and longest used herbs known to man. It was described in a Greek herbal written in the third century B.C. and is probably a native of the eastern Mediterranean area¸ though its exact origin is not known. In ancient Greece¸ Parsley was placed in wreaths given to winning athletes because the Greeks believed that the god Hercules had chosen Parsley for his garlands. Today¸ in addition to a garnish¸ Parsley is used extensively in food preparation to enhance the flavor of meats¸ fish¸ fowl¸ eggs¸ and vegetables.
