Too much dill... and that's a problem?


Fresh Dill

"I have way to much dill, do you want some?" I hear this so often... but I just never understand it. I can never have enough dill! Maybe the problem is that I planted my garden too late this year and didn't get any. Whatever the case I am always open to taking it off of peoples hands if they want to get rid of it.


Thankfully for me just this morning a good friend of mine had the "way too much dill problem" and gave me some. Now it is not that I am able to consume that much fresh dill. No, if I just put it in my fridge it would rot. But I don't even give it that chance. My secret is freeze it! It makes it so much more convenient to use anyway.




First off wash it, and dry it thoroughly... use a salad spinner. Don't waste your time trying to air, or towel dry. I for one, definitely don't have the patience for that!




Next strip it off of the stem, and directly onto a clean cutting board (another time saving tip) so that you are not trying to collect all of the pieces off of your counter.


Finally cut it fine, put it into a freezer bag, and into the freezer.




I like to keep all of my frozen herbs in the door of the freezer so that they are easy to grab when I am cooking.

Now it is ready to go! It has so much more flavor than using the dried herbs. Honestly who wants to use dried dill for tzatziki? That just seems wrong!
