So as an adult, my diet is madly different and I eat all sorts of diverse things (even tripe in a Belgrade workers' cafe) though it took me a while to get used to coriander and basil and tarragon and thyme and.... And in my fridge today I saw that we had a bag of parsley which was looking very very sad. I didn't want to throw it out- so wasteful- so I did the Jamie Oliver thing and decided to freeze it. I have been very good this week and also saved some excruciatingly limp celery by sticking it into a glass of iced water. See - I am being very thrifty in my old age!
So here is what I did with the parsley:
|limp parsley looking sad|
|adding salt and pepper and olive oil|
|ready to blitz|
|ready for the freezer|
I threw the parsley into the food processor, added salt and pepper and a couple of tablespoons of olive oil, and blitzed! Top up each little cavity with a bit more olive oil and chuck into the freezer. The next day you can place the cubes into a plastic bag for easy access.
They are now sitting in the freezer, ready to go into stews and soups. In fact, Mr Pickings chucked a couple of cubes into the vegie stew he made tonight for my vegetarian sister. Nooiiice one Mr Pickings!
