Why Dehydrate Parsley
Parsley is a great addition to just about any meal but keeping it on hand is not always the most convenient thing. If your like me you have tried to grow it in your window garden and became a total failure because you couldn’t use it all so you gave up. After all a little goes a looong way. It was to hard for me to waste it all so I just let my plants die…what turned out to be a very slow death for them. Fast forward two years later and I am working my dehydrator to the bone. Hardly a night can be slept in my house without hearing the soft hum of something being preserved and last week was the latest harvest from my window garden, parsley.
All winter long I will be using this delicious herb in just about everything I make. Because parsley is so easy to grow in abundance, I stuck with growing only two plants and am still able to fill a tray in my dehydrator with the extra.
How To Dehydrate Parsley
If you think growing parsley is easy than stand back and be amazed at how easy it is to dry parsley. It really is a matter if harvesting, pinching off from the stems, soaking in your sink or washing well to remove bugs and dirt and placing in your dehydrator on 135 degrees until dry. As I am only drying a sheet at a time mine is done in a couple of hours. Your drying time will vary according to how full your dehydrator is. Pack it full with several trays and you could be looking at 8 hours. I then store mine in either a small canning jar or I save all those old spice jars from store bought spices.
