Conserving Parsley

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Can someone tell me if I chop some beautiful Italian parsley, if you put it in a jar in some olive oil how long will that keep?

Chop it, place it in a glass jar and keep in the freezer. When you need some parsley, open the jar, take whatever you need and use as you would fresh parsley (it thaws in seconds), and replace the jar in the freezer for next time.

It is generally not recommended to keep herbs in oil unless you are also freezing them. There is a risk of botulism. If you do decide to try to preserve parsley in oil, here are some safe preparation guidelines from Health Canada:

Chop, rinse with water put in clean towel or cheesecloth and then squeeze water out. Will last 1 week in fridge and can be frozen for later use.
