      Hi Alison
      This is a reader recipe so I’m not quite sure but we will check with the author and get back to you. Sorry this was missed until now! Lady Tara

      Hi again, I didn’t hear back from her yet but I have to assume the extra parsley was for garnish and the salt was if you wanted to add it for taste. How did it come out? – Tara

    I don’t think the picture goes with the recipe … the picture has potatoes, celery and carrots showing; none of which are in the recipe.

      Yes, when a recipe is shared with us by a reader, sometimes there is not a picture to go along with the recipe so we use a “generic” picture of a crock-pot.
