Curly leaf parsley ( ) is often used as a garnish as it's more attractive than it's cousin Petroselinum crispum flat leaf parsley, which has more flavour. The use of curly leaf parsley may be favored by some because it cannot be confused with poison hemlock, like flat leaf parsley or chervil.
Outdoors. A site in semi-shade is ideal.
Sow seeds ½cm (¼in) deep in April for a summer crop and again in August for winter use. Germination is slow, it may take up to a couple of months.
Thin seedlings to 25cm (9in) between plants.
Water in dry weather and cover overwintering plants with cloches or straw.
Remove flowering stems as they appear. Some can be left to provide seeds for sowing next year.
Pick regularly to ensure a continuous supply of fresh leaves.
Dip the tips into boiling water for 2 minutes and then place in an oven on the lowest possible setting until crisp. Crush and store as soon as the leaves are cool.
Shred leaves and pack into ice cube trays in the deep freeze. Add individual cubes of frozen parsley to soups, stews etc. as required.
