How to prepare dill for winter? My favorite way is to freeze them. I don’t know why, but I don’t like the taste of dried dills. It’s completely something different. To freeze the dill you need only a few minutes!
I’m buying bulk from organic farmers and they usually are clean. If choose to wash: leave on the kitchen towel until dry (not the dill but the water!). If you cut freshly washed dill, there will be too much moisture and dill will freeze in one big chunk.
- Separate dill leaves from the stems.
- Place into the jar (don’t pack to avoid big frozen dill chunk!), screw the lid on, add a label and put in the freezer.
That is it. How I use them up? Adding to the stews, casseroles, salads, and soups.
Every self-respecting Latvian cook has frozen dill in the freezer. So does Latvian mom!
