5 ounces of parsley   I use curly

1 pound of sugar

1 1/2 pints of water

1/2 teaspoon of vinegar

Wash and dry parsley, roughly chop,  Put in a pan with water and boil until it reduces to 1 pint.

Strain and add sugar, stir over a low heat until sugar melts then bring back to the boil. Boil until syrupy like honey about 20mins. ( some recipes say boil some say simmer). Pour into sterilised jars and seal.

This gells by the next day. It is syrupy and about the consistency of runny honey.

Never give up Tomorrow is another day.

Will have a go at this. Will look for some curly parsley. It looks easy and I love honey, I have it on my porridge every morning.

I make this a lot. When I first made it I thought it was not going to thicken but by the next day it was fine. I make a syrup cake that is not very sweet and we have that drizzled with this parsley honey and some cream for pud.

Thanks for the warning about setting! I would have panicked! If I get a chance I will check the local supermarket for the parsley. Does it have to be curly? Flat leaf is always available here.

The recipe just says parsley, I bought curly as I did not know if flat leaf was around in England during the war. The consistency should be like runny honey.

Ooh, I have an enormous parsley plant that survived the winter, I've just chopped loads off it to stop it from flowering, could have tried this, but the gave it to the chickens, will try next time.
