I have Dill. Lots and lots of dill coming in my garden - I think it's my gardens way of making up for getting annihilated last year from rain, snow, hail and earwigs (yuck!) My favorite part of dill isn't using the dill weed but, waiting for the dill seeds to plump up, turn brown and shake off! I really liken fresh dill seeds to a similar taste - rye seeds. Last year I had to settle for buying dill seed from a store and let me say - there is NO comparison! Fresh is so much MORE tasty and full of flavor! In this recipe I used both dill weed and seed. it's a nice compliment to a fish dinner too... In this recipe - I use my 'Homemade Baking Mix' (link in recipe below) If you cannot grow or find fresh dill weed/seed in the stores - check with your local Farmers Market - a lot of purveyors will have it for you to buy... ~Enjoy!
