101 uses for parsely

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

101 uses for parsely

As this stuff grows better than grass here, we have the flat leaved parsely and the curled leaf stuff. Currenty in certain areas we mow it.
So what uses are their for parsley
1. we can dried it and use it as a dried herb
2. we can pick it fresh all year round and use it fresh as a herb

there has to be more that we can do with the stuff. Can you use it as a veg? is there such a thing as parsley pesto?

I do believe there is such a thing as parsley pesto (possibly with walnuts instead of pine nuts?). Have you tried googling it?

8. I've not tried it, as the idea has only just occurred to me, but the curly leaved stuff might make an interesting painting tool. It would probably work a bit like a sponge (NB I'm thinking pictures, but it might do for walls too).

Depending on how big the leaves are, it might look nice in flower arrangements.
