HERB – CHERVIL

Anthiscus cerefolium

Chervil is a member of the Carrot family & its leaves highly resemble carrot tops. The young green leaves, which smell similar to Anise, are collected before they lose their flavour. Chervil is best used fresh. To store wrap it in damp paper towels & cling wrap & keep it in the crisper in the fridge. It can only be used for 2 to 3 days. Its short life span means that it is difficult to find for sale, & this is one reason that it is not well known. Chervil grows to a height of 30 to 66 cm & has small white flowers.

Chervil will grow in any soil but dislikes being too    wet although it does need water, it won’t like being in badly drained soil.
