Parsley Root — Staff Tips:

What does 4 oz. of parsley root look like? If you’re in the US I’m sure you’ve seen the huge bunches of parsley at the grocery store for a buck. That’ll give you 4 oz. of sprigs to work with. Make sure you pick it over before you throw it in the pot – there’s often wilty bits hiding in the middle, and I know you don’t want those in your soup. Remove the sprigs from the long stems and you’ll be good to go.
