Extreme macro of parsley flakes. (Explore)
Parsley is the dried leaves of the hardy biennial herb Petroselinum crispum (family Umbelliferae). This is probably the most well-known and used herb in the United States, used extensively in garnishing foods as well as for flavoring of sauces, stews and stocks. Curly leaf Parsley is best known for garnishing, while flat leaf or Italian Parsley is used in bouquets garni and other flavoring applications.
Parsley adds color, and thus visual appeal, to many foods. It is used in egg dishes, soups, stews, stocks, and with other herbs to bring out their flavor. Parsley is popular in Middle Eastern cuisine and the spice blends of fines herbes, bouquet garni, and pestos.
The principal sources of Parsley are the United States, Canada, Germany, Belgium, Hungary, Spain and France.
Parsley was used to flavor and garnish food as early as the third century B.C. The name "parsley" comes from the Greek word petros, meaning "stone," because the plant was often found growing among rocks. In ancient times, wreaths were made with parsley and were worn to prevent intoxication. Parsley was brought to the New World by the colonists.
Arizona State Fair 2010 - Smoke, meat, man, & light
Moments from the Arizona State Fair, Phoenix, 2010... A cook barbeques some good looking meat.
I did toy with the idea of doing a cook-book. The recipes were to be the routine ones: how to make dry toast, instant coffee, hearts of lettuce and brownies. But as an added attraction, at no extra charge, my idea was to put a fried egg on the cover. I think a lot of people who hate literature but love fried eggs would buy it if the price was right.
Not on morality, but on cookery, let us build our stronghold: there brandishing our frying-pan, as censer, let us offer sweet incense to the Devil, and live at ease on the fat things he has provided for his elect!
Please, try to eat a bit less meat, a bit more veggies from today.
Let it become a habit gradually until not to eat meat anymore.
Then, observe the changing of the body and spirit after eating veggies, fruits and grains ?
