Cow Parsley is a member of the carrot family and enjoys the same habitats as Poison Hemlock (Conium maculatum). While we haven't found much of either in this area, it is important to familiarize yourself with both of these plants and follow your patches through a full life cycle before collecting. Take percaution when harvesting members of the carrot family.
This feathery herb is commonly used in french cooking to garnish dishes. Cow Parsley is also one of the herbs classically used in fines herbes along with parsley, chives, and tarragon. It is no surprise then that cow parsley can be used in place of parsley in salad dressings, salads, and as a garnish. It pairs particularly well with potatoes, tomatoes, peas, fish and seafood, and eggs.
