Chopping Herbs


Ok Im usually pretty handy with a knife and my chopping skills are not bad. I recently bought fresh Itlain parsley and cilantro (:drool:). When I was making my dinner tonight I decided to add some of these to my pasta. I soon discovered how crappy I am at chopping up herbs. I tried a trick I saw on t.v where you roll the leaves then chop them but I suck at that too. So I was wondering you guys have any tips on chopping herbs (a fine chop)

Rosemary took over my garden in the south. I grew strawberries, tomatoes, green bell peppers, basil and rosemary. Oh, no, it was the basil that took over, and it killed my rosemary. LOL.

It's a perfect match, Yayi. It's just a tough rollercoaster life for the plants. :rotfl: We have black thumbs, Twink. :(

I've been trying to grow some Hawaiian chili peppers here because for some reason nobody in North Carolina sells them. :? LOL OMG I suck. I've damn near killed it one time already by leaving it out in the cold for too long. Thankfully the hubbin can bring a stick back to life. So, I'm back on track now, but I haven't watered it in at least three weeks and the soil STILL feels wet. :? It's growing though. I guess I super duper overwatered it for a while. :? We DO need a GardenSugar. :D

i usually just rip the leafs off without a knife and break them with my fingers. You have to wash because it usually has soil

When I was younger I bought this long pot that contained different types of herbs. These things were resilent. Im horrible at remembering to water plants so the herbs would always get dry and brown. I would then water them a couple of time and they would spring back to life. They were pretty easy to grow. You can even grow them inside near a window

I rinse them. Yayi, cilantro/coriander is hard to find here too. But I got lucky last night and found some. I wonder how hard it would be to grow :?

I used to wash our rosemary since it was from our backyard and a spider web haven :oy: but otherwise, I just do a quick rinse.

yea you better wash everything. Never know who decided to be lazy on the job and pee or poo near the plant ya know :oy:
JessNess JessNess 7 years 35 weeks
huh I never thought of that. I usually have dried herbs so I never really needed to wash them. I dont know. They are so small I would be afraid of washing the little leaves right into the sink.

I know you're supposed to wash EVERYTHING these days but do you wash your herbs? I wash the leafy herbs but I have to admit I don't wash thyme or rosemary. Thoughts?
JessNess JessNess 7 years 35 weeks
I love it. I love the taste and the smell- mostly the smell
yayita yayita 7 years 35 weeks
