The most popular and versatile herb, parsley originated in the eastern Mediterranean but is now grown in England, the U.S., Australia and New Zealand. Of the many varieties grown, the curly leafed type is most popular in North American. Parsley has an agreeable taste and a pleasant mild odor. It blends well with all other herbs. It is used for both eye and taste appeal in many foods. McCormick retains parsley's characteristic flavor and green color by a quick drying process.
