Parsley bowl method: fresh for a long time

The most used method is certainly that of the chefs, which is based on the preservation of the ingredient for over a month. First of all it must be well washed and dried, and then finely chopped inside a bowl. When this is full, you can pour it into a glass jar enriched with an airtight seal.

At this point you can put it in a cool and dry place – not in the fridge – for a month. Parsley can also be stored in another way.

In fact, it will be enough to cut the lower part, that of the stems, at a height of about 12mm in order to absorb all the necessary water.

The leaves of the parsley will need to be dry. At this point the twigs can be placed in a glass bowl filled with 3/4 of water. In this case it can be put in the refrigerator: to preserve the parsley, wrap a classic plastic bag around the bowl, fixing with an elastic band.

The method is recognized because doing so retains the moisture of the leaves so as not to dry them.
