How To Store
- The leaves of fresh dill should look feathery and green in color.
- Dill leaves that are a little wilted are still acceptable since they usually droop very quickly after being picked.
- Fresh dill should always be stored in the refrigerator either wrapped in a damp paper towel or with its stems placed in a container of water.
- Since it is very fragile, even if stored properly, dill will only keep fresh for about two days.
- Dill can be frozen, either whole or chopped, in airtight containers.
- Alternatively, you can freeze the dill leaves in ice cube trays covered with water or stock that can be added when preparing soups or stews.
- Make a veggie dip with dill weed, plain yogurt and chopped cucumber
