About Dried Dill Weed
Dill is an ancient herb used in cooking throughout the world. Dill leaves (dried or fresh) are sometimes called dill weed in order to be distinguished from dill seeds. Dried dill weed is quite flavorful with hints of anise, celery, parsley, and a lemony aroma.
Dill is probably best known in the United States for its use in making dill pickles. However, it can also be used to flavor grilled fish, potato salads, sauces, soups, dips, herb butters, and vegetable dishes. Make a dill sauce to garnish your roasted salmon by mixing it with sour cream and a pinch of sea salt and garlic powder.
Fresh dill vs dried dill: a good rule to follow — use a third of the amount of dried dill in relation to the amount of fresh dill the recipe calls for. In other words, 1 Tablespoon of fresh dill = 1 tsp of dried dill. Dried herbs have a concentrated flavor, so less is needed to achieve your result.
