Add 2 tablespoons of water to a cup of fresh parsley and whisk it into a fine slurry in the blender.   Freeze the mixture in an ice cube tray, when frozen wrap in a soft cloth and hold under your eye for 15 minutes.

Omit the salt when cooking noodles, and instead flavor the water, or the cooked pasta with chopped parsley.
