Parsley not only makes food taste good, but also makes it look more appetizing. There are two popular types of parsley: the flat leaved and the curvy leaved. The flat leaved is also known as Italian parsley; this one has a stronger taste and not as bitter as the curvy one.
How to Prepare Parsley
Buy your parsley. Parsley is normally sold as a bunch. It is best to buy fresh parsley rather than dried parsley. When buying it, make sure that the leaves are fresh and bright green and don't look wilted or yellow.
Keep your parsley fresh. When not dried, it should be kept in a plastic bag and sprinkled with water when it appears wilted. It could also be stood upright in a jar with a little water, as long as you clipped the ends.
Prepare for washing. Washing parsley is very similar to washing spinach. For this, you need to fill a bowl with cold water and place the parsley in it.
Swish the parsley around in the bowl with your hands. Repeat this process with clean water until the water no longer gets dirty after washing the parsley.
Chop, cut, or rip the parsley. You can use a knife or kitchen scissors. When using a knife, hold the tip of the knife down with your non-dominant hand. Then move your dominant hand up and down the leaves until the desired consistency is achieved. When using kitchen scissors, put the parsley in a bowl and keep on snipping with the scissors until it is chopped to the desired consistency. You can also rip the parsley, instead of cutting it.
