    Angry Flat leaf parsley???

    I love the way these chefs on TV throw this term around. seems like everyone is using Italian flat leaf parsley. well, then can someone tell me where to purchase this elusive herb because I can not find it anywhere. the super market produce guy says it's either cilantro or they don't know, duh!!!
    someone please help....do I need to mail order it from Italy or what???

    thank you

    I'm surprised you can't find it. I live in rural Georgia and have it at the grocery store. I grow my own though. Wally world carries it. It's usually next to the cilantro and they do look a lot alike so you have to smell the difference or look on the little twist band. It's really easy to grow your own too. I bought my plants from the Ace hardware and they are "Bonnie" plants.

    I grow my own flat leaf parsley too. I heard it makes a good companion for rose gardens and decided to see for myself. I bought a couple packets of seeds and tossed them in around my rose beds last spring. It's worked out great so far, the parsley outcompetes many of the weeds and helps keep the soil shaded and moist for the roses during the hot summer months. Parsley is easy to grow (cut it back before it goes to seed, otherwise it gets stringy and flops over) and I love having it fresh year round (Oregon climate is mild enough to accomodate). One of my favorites is chopped fresh on greek fish florentine or in the ricotta mixture for lasagna. I can't always use the entire bunch sold at the grocery store so I started coming up with creative ways to use the leftovers. Try it in fresh green salads, sprinkled on steaks just before serving, or on garlic bread in place of italian seasoning.

    Good luck!
