So, I'm going to try and make dilly beans today. I've searched a few times to find out what dill head is exactly (photo would have been wonderful) but I can't find a good description of it. Help!!!!

You aren't going to find it in the grocery store. Just get some dill seed from the spice section and use about a teaspoon per jar. Save some seed and scatter it in the garden. You'll have more dill than you need soon.

Jori, any time you need a picture of something, go to Google, click on "images" at the top left, and then type in what you want to find. Most of the time you'll come up with something useful.

They have changed the format; instead of clicking on pages, it scrolls on forever, which I don't like. And don't turn your kids loose on it without supervision... I know they're still very small, but bad stuff turns up even in the most innocent searches. sad.gif

And CrabGrassAcres... we actually *do* sometimes have fresh dill that shows up in our supermarkets around here. happy0203.gif They stand it in an inch of water in the produce dept.

And yeah, you can use dried seed, Jori. wink.gif

We have fresh dill at the store, too. Tall, and standing in a bucket of water.
I use dill seed sometimes, though. Use 2 to 3 tsp. per head of dill called for. Depends upon how much dill flavor you like.

I can, you can, too !

MIL had lots (sent me home with WAY to much but that's another post on what to do with it). So is one head just one of the little "balls"? Or that entire stem? Or half of it? Way to many questions for a Saturday - LOL

It might just be that there are still a lot of people who can in our areas. If it doesn't sell, stores won't bring it in. 'Course, you could always ask them to. shrug.gif

I buy dill in the produce section where they have the fresh herbs, it usually comes in a little plastic box. It's not the same kind of dill as shown above but it tastes the same. I believe it's called fernleaf dill.

You can dry dill like other herbs. I use dried dill in potato salad and potato pancakes. You can use dried dill in pickling too.
