Now that’s a totally exciting title isn’t it? Parsley.

Well I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the parsley that I planted this year in the garden and then it dawned on me. Why don’t I dehydrate it and keep it for stuff this winter? Now just exactly what stuff? Well who knows! But maybe I’ll come up with something in a couple of months.

So I thought well heck yeah! Let’s get this ball rolling. After what I thought was about a bushel basket of greens from my garden, into the house I go with just my bowl in my hands. I had to go through it piece to piece just to make sure that I didn’t have any caterpillars or anything in it (which is a totally gross thought!! ) and then I gave it all a really good wash. I worked hard to make sure that I didn’t have also any weeds, which I’m thinking that I got them all. After awhile everything just kind of blends together.

Next was to get it onto the dehydrator and start the drying process. It sure seemed like I had a lot of this stuff, so after the trays were full I decided that maybe the rest of all the parsley would be much better on the south side of the garage. Like thrown there on the ground! Yup, that was also a good idea so after that I knew that I only was going to make one batch of this.

After about 24 hours of drying, it was finally done 20151003_142458and I’ve pretty much surprised myself when I put it all into one mason jar. And it actually looks pretty good! Now the only problem that I have is to figure out just what in the world am I going to do with it?
