Pick parsley from the garden. Wash if needed. If washing, dry overnight on a towel. Don't move to the next step until parsley is completely dry.
Place paper towel down on plate, lay out parsley, in a single layer, trying not to overlap.
Add another piece of paper towel on top to cover the parsley.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL IN THE NEXT STEP. STAY THERE AND WATCH YOUR PARSLEY. DO NOT LEAVE UNATTENDED IN THE MICROWAVE. Put your parsley in the microwave and microwave for 1 minute. After 1 minute, check your parsley and see if it’s dried. Most likely it will need more time. If so, do increments of 10 seconds. Microwave for 10 seconds, check. Not done? Do another 10 seconds. My parsley usually takes 1:30-1:50. Repeat until all parsley is dried, changing your paper towel as needed.
Remove parsley from the microwave. Over a bowl, gently rub the stems so the leaves fall off.
Once the bowl is filled with parsley stems, use your fingers (or a spoon) to crush into dried parsley. Store dried parsley in glass jar.
