It was thanks to Charlemagne that parsley arrived in France. The plant was used in cooking, but also in medicine, especially to treat hepatitis and kidney disease.
It is in the XIIIth century that the name of parsley appeared as we know it. Previously, it was known by its Greek name: Petroselinon, which means "Celery of the Rocks". In fact, for a long time it was thought that parsley was a variety of celery.
It was in the 15th and 16th centuries that it began to be cultivated in Western Europe and America.
Parsley is the most consumed aromatic plant in France. It is mainly produced in Spain, France and Italy.
In France, there is a mass sales circuit, present in the major cities, and a so-called "secondary" production, carried out by salad producers. The volume of parsley grown in France is over 14,000 tons, of which 1/3 comes from the Ile-de-France region.

Here is a 3-course menu where you can enjoy all the flavour of our fresh freeze-dried parsley.
To be enjoyed as a starter or as an aperitif, vegetable dips are a healthy alternative to salty snacks. Cut some carrots and celery sticks into sticks, wash some radishes and cherry tomatoes, cut and rinse some cauliflower balls. Arrange them in a dish. Make a white sauce based on a Greek yoghurt.

A classic of French cuisine, ideal for rediscovering the flavours that marked our childhood. Wipe your soles clean and flaked with an absorbent paper towel. Dredge the soles in a spicy flour (salt and pepper). Brown them in a hazelnut butter. Add lemon juice at the end of cooking. Add pepper. Serve by coating your soles with lemon butter and sprinkle generously with parsley. Delicious with steamed potatoes.
Please note: The sole meunière is normally made with finely chopped fresh parsley. However, since freeze-dried parsley retains all its flavour even when hot, you can replace fresh parsley with freeze-dried fresh parsley.
And here's a bit of freshness to end this menu around the parsley. Bring 0.5 l of water and 150 g of fine sugar to the boil. Once the sugar has dissolved, let it cool. Add 3 tablespoons of fresh freeze-dried parsley. Mix and place in the freezer for 45 minutes. Whisk two egg whites and gently fold them into the cooled preparation. Place your sorbet in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
Fresh freeze-dried parsley is stored in an airtight container, away from the sun and in a dry environment. Under good storage conditions, it can be kept for several years without losing its flavour.
