Parsley ‘Moss Curled’, the curly parsley we all know so well, is readily available freshly cut in most supermarkets and green grocers.
Flat-leaf parsley (also know as Italian parsley) which is superior in flavour is not that readily available (in South Africa anyway) and you should sow and grow your own if you want to indulge in this herb.
If you are not into gardening and/or can’t find fresh cut parsley, you can purchase dried parsley from your local supermarket. But be warned, it is no better than dried grass and only fit to be used when the in-laws come to visit.
No store bought parsley will be able to beat the flavour and freshness of your own home grown parsley. So your best parsley source is growing your own.
