Harvesting: Parsley

Parsley is a commonly used herb that can be used as decoration or as part of a dish. Our parsley plant is one of our quickest growers in our little herb garden, and we’ve used it to decorate some of our homemade guacamole, in salads, on pasta, pizzas, etc.

There are two different types of parsley:

  1. Flat leaf (aka) Italian Parsley (commonly used, and what we have in our garden)
  2. Curly leaf (available in most grocery stores)
Remember to always harvest your parsley from the base of the plant.

Four important things to remember once you’ve harvested your parsley:

  1. Wash
  2. Shake
  3. Air Dry
  4. Place it in a glass of water if you’re not going to use it right away.
