Ancient Greeks associated parsley with death, it was supposed to have sprung from the blood of Archemorous, whose name meant, forerunner of death. It was never used in Ancient Greek cuisine. Nowadays it is used by Greek Orthodox Tradition in the preparation of Koliva, the Orthodox Memorial service, performed at various intervals after a death and on special occasions, such as the Saturday of Souls (ψυχοσάββατο) and funerals. The botanical name is petroselinum, the Greek word for stone, as it grows on rocky hillsides. Early Greeks made crowns from parsley, for the victors of the Nemean and Isthmian games. Very little doesn?t benefit from parsley, sauces, stews, cheese, fish, and of course, as a garnish.
