How to freeze parsley?

Parsley is a hardy plant and resists winter quite well, even in the garden. However, to maintain it you will have to collect leaves so that the foliage of your aromatic plants can be more dense. To use your parsley and other aromatic plants, URBAN CUISINE offers you plenty of recipes: meat-based with Free-range Chicken with Flat Parsley , or even seafood recipes with Scallops with Potatoes and Parsley Dish , the vegetarian recipe Mushrooms stuffed with Parsley Dish and many more.

Parsley is widely used in the kitchen to season your food all year round.

First method necessary for freezing: take your sprigs of parsley

Wait until the leaf stalk has three segments before harvesting. Cut at the base of the plant, not the leaves. This will stimulate the growth of your plants and you can use the stems to flavor your dishes.

Sort the stalks and keep the best ones. Rinse them to remove the soil, then drain them in a colander. Finally, wrap a tea towel around the sprigs of parsley so they can dry.
