NOTE: Parsley is a biennial, meaning it will live for only two years. These plants are approaching a year old. They are at their peak for harvesting leaves, but after they flower in spring, they will die. These plant are also living happily in an unheated greenhouse, and would do better on your porch or in your garden than in your kitchen for the winter. This slightly peppery and bright herb is so much more than a bit of green on the side of your plate. Parsley is a great source of vitamin C, calcium, iron and fiber. Raw parsley also acts as a breath freshener and has anti-inflammatory properties. To store parsley, rinse with cool water and then wrap in a slightly damp paper towel in a resealable plastic bag and keep in the fridge. You can dry your fresh parsley by tying a bunch together and hanging it upside down in a cool, dry place. When the parsley is completely dry, remove the stems and store the dried leaves in an airtight container. You can also dry out your parsley in a slightly warm (100 degrees F) oven or in a dehydrator.
