THE FLAT-LEAF PARSLEY is one of the money-makers at the Costales Nature Farms in Majayjay, Laguna. It is being sold at P500 per kilo to specialty restaurants and other customers, especially in Metro Manila.
It is useful as a flavoring for soups, salads, stews and more. Photo shows Eddie Gamalando of Costales Nature Farms showing a bunch of flat-leaf parsley grown in a greenhouse.
With a greenhouse, production is year-round. Ronald Costales, the farm owner, says that the flat-leaf parsley is good for the health of the kidney.
There is another variety, the curly parsley which is less flavorful than the flat-leaf. It is, however, more decorative and it has its own use in culinary preparations.
