This is a HowTo schema I copied from Google.

{
      "@context": "https://schema.org",
      "@type": "HowTo",
      "name": "How to tile a kitchen backsplash",
      "image": {
        "@type": "ImageObject",
        "url": "https://example.com/photos/1x1/photo.jpg",
        "height": "406",
        "width": "305"
      },
      -----
}

I can not find if it is valid to use a description property like the name it has. Will Google display the description property?

{
      "@context": "https://schema.org",
      "@type": "HowTo",
      "name": "How to tile a kitchen backsplash",
      "description": "5 steps to tile a kitchen backsplash",
       "image": {
        "@type": "ImageObject",
        "url": "https://example.com/photos/1x1/photo.jpg",
        "height": "406",
        "width": "305"
      },
      -----
}

https://search.google.com/test/rich-results does not complain. However, It does not complain either if I use a random property, eg.:

{
      "@context": "https://schema.org",
      "@type": "HowTo",
      "name": "How to tile a kitchen backsplash",
      "example": "5 steps to tile a kitchen backsplash",
       "image": {
        "@type": "ImageObject",
        "url": "https://example.com/photos/1x1/photo.jpg",
        "height": "406",
        "width": "305"
      },
      -----
}

    If Google docs don't specifically mention supporting description, it is unlikely they will use it in the rich snippets. But there is no harm in including properties that schema.org supports. Jul 29 at 23:09
