Expert Tips

Store fresh parsley much like you would fresh flowers: Put stems into a glass full of water. Your "bouquet" of parsley will last about 1 week if you cover the parsley leaves with a plastic bag and refrigerate.

Chopping fresh parsley (or other fresh herbs) is a breeze when you place it in a cup and use kitchen scissors to snip it into small pieces.
