Full Answer

When herbs are dried, the flavor concentrates, becoming more potent. In the United States, commercially packaged parsley flakes are typically made with curled-leaf parsley. Fresh flat-leaf and curled-leaf parsley can be dried at home in the oven or a food dehydrator. Home-dried parsley, which should be stored in an airtight container, stays fresh for up to one year.
