Parsley is a staple herb that shows up in countless recipes from soups, stews, meats, pasta, and even some pesto recipes. The variety in the VUMC garden is the Italian Flat Leaf, which has a much more pronounced flavor than other varieties like the curled leaf. Parsley is a biennial herb, which means that it produces edible leaves the first year and flowers and seeds the second year.
