Hey everybody! My Italian parsley is ridiculously happy and as little container and I'm afraid it's going to go to waste. So, how do you guys preserve your parsley?

Mine is out of control and grows year round, so I just pick it as needed. Kentucky is as warm as Washington, it might be easier to have fresh all the time.

Dehydrator. Don’t let it go to seed...it gets bitter.

if you have a dehydrator use that, if not you can air dry it in a mesh bag, or by hanging the cut stems leaves down in a well ventilated area. With my mint, I will hang a large mess bag in the garage.

Doesn’t it take a long time to dry in Texas? Or is it not humid where you are? One could easily dry herbs, or most anything, outside here in southwest Arizona.

@MissKathleen It was much harder on the gulf coast, but Dallas is on the edge of Texas desert. Not as hot and dry as you, but air drying will work here. As long as you have enough air circulating not to get mold, you are OK.

Keep splitting and repotting. then you can give it away sell it, or sometimes you just have to put things on the compost.

cut it off and dry it, leave enough to encourage new growth.

I dry all my herbs with a dehydrator. 😍

I dry mine in a dehydrator, storing it in small canning jars. I also try to use up a lot of it fresh by preparing parsley heavy recipes like green sauced shrimp and tabouli salad.

Yum, tabouli.
