How to Freeze Dill



How to Freeze Dill

Fresh dill is expensive to buy, but cheap to grow. Plant enough to get you through the year. Then, freeze your harvest.

Difficulty: Easy

Time Required: Five minutes of hands-on time or less

Here's How:

  1. Wash the dill in cold water; then, shake or pat dry.
  2. Lay the sprigs out on a cookie sheet and freeze.
  3. Transfer the frozen sprigs to a freezer bag.

    To use: Pull out as much as you need, and use it just as you would fresh dill. It thaws so quickly, there's no need to do anything special.


  1. For the freshest dill, harvest sprigs early in the morning and freeze them right away.
  2. Not into gardening? Fresh herbs often get marked down at the grocery store. Snatch up reduced-price packages of dill, and freeze them.

What You Need:

  • Fresh dill
  • Water
  • A cookie sheet
  • A freezer bag or freezer-safe container
