Hi, my name is Paege Chafin and I'm the owner and executive chef of Roman Gardens Restaurant in St. Petersburg, Florida and today I'm going to tell you the best way to preserve your fresh parsley. Keeping parsley fresh is as easy as one-two-three. You don't have to do anything to it for the first two days that you've got it but after you've had it two or three days, take it out of the original bag that you got from the store and clip the ends of on the stems. Once you've clipped the ends off, take wet paper towels and wrap it completely around your fresh parsley before you put it back into a Ziploc bag but always remember to leave the bag open at the top. Don't zip your Ziploc because then your parsley won't be able to breathe. Every couple days, please change the wet paper towel that you put in there and you'll notice a little bit of the leaves turning a little bit yellow, but the parsley till still tastes just the same, yellow or green. See? Wasn't that easy? Keeping parsley fresh is not as hard as you thought, right? Once again I'm Paege Chafin from Roman Gardens in St. Pete and have a great day.
