Did you know?

Parsley sprigs are a common way to garnish a plate of food, which is a relic of an ancient Roman custom of planting parsley on graves.  A sprig of parsley was either associated with warding off the devil or as an antidote for poison so adding a sprig to a plate of food may have originated as a gesture of good faith and as way to safeguard the meal from evil.
