Recently I decided to try my hand at drying my large Parsley patch that was threatening to run to seed. I'm glad I did because there is no way we could have used the whole plant in time even though we did try! I cut the whole plant back to the base and hung the bunches to dry in my hot water cupboard above the cylinder. I left it for about a week as I never seemed to find the time to tend to it but it actually did help to keep it dry even if it didn't get that crispy feeling that it is meant to.
