Fresh dill is expensive to buy, but cheap to grow. Plant enough to get you through the year. Then, freeze your harvest.
Time Required: Five minutes of hands-on time or less
- Wash the dill in cold water; then, shake or pat dry.
- Lay the sprigs out on a cookie sheet and freeze.
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.
- For the freshest dill, harvest sprigs early in the morning and freeze them right away.
- 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
