* Culinary uses of parsley:
Parsley greens are preserved by dry salting. For pickling, greens are taken before flowering or at the very beginning of flowering. It is sorted out (discarding hard stems, stiff parts), after which it is washed in cold water and cut into pieces 1.5-2 cm long. small wooden or earthenware barrels, enameled or glass containers. A layer of salt is poured onto the bottom of the dishes before laying the greens. Greens in a container on top are also covered with salt. Store in a cool place.
Yellowed and damaged leaves are removed. The greens are thoroughly washed in cold running water and allowed to drain. The stems are tied into small bundles and hung on a rope or wire under a canopy, in a shed, in an attic, or in other well-ventilated areas. In wet weather, the washed greens are finely cut and dried in an oven or oven for 2.5-3.5 hours at a temperature of +65..+70°C. Washed and peeled parsley roots are finely chopped and then dried in the air or in the oven. From 100 g of fresh root crops, 14-15 g of dry ones are obtained. Store dried parsley in glass, tightly closed jars.
