How can you preserve parsley fresh after it has been washed?

Fresh parsley can be kept in the fridge for up to two weeks by washing it in warm water. Once the water has evaporated, wrap the bunch in paper towel and place in a bag. You can remove the paper towel to store longer, and then place the bag in the freezer.
