Dill is an herb well known for its use in flavoring pickles. Both the plant leaves "dill weed" and the seeds are used in cooking and as pickling spices. The leaves can b…e used dried, as you see most often in jars in spice sections of the supermarket, or used fresh, snipped straight from the fresh green plant. When "fresh dill" is an ingredient in a recipe, it is the green plant leaves (and tender stems) that are being called for. Dried dill weed can be substituted for the fresh dill weed but there will be some loss of "fresh" flavor. In general, you can substitue one teaspoon of dried herbs for one Tablespoon of fresh herbs (a 1:3 ratio). Dried herbs do lose their flavor over time, so if your jar of dill was not recently purchased, you may need to add slightly more, test the flavor and let your taste guide you. It is better to start with less dried herbs and gradually add more if needed, than to start out with too much since that can overpower the other flavors of the dish. If a recipe doesn't otherwise specify, whenever "dill" is listed as an ingredient, use the "dill weed" or leaves. Dill seed will be specifically called for if that is the intended ingredient. As a rule of thumb, you can always substitute dried herbs for fresh and fresh for dried using the 1:3 ratio of dried (1 part) to fresh (3 parts).
1 cup of dried dill
1 teaspoon ground = 1 tablespoon fresh. Ground or dried herbs are actually stronger than their fresh counterparts.
3 tsp. of dried dill will be equal to 1 tsp. of fresh dill.
! teaspoon of dried dill is equivalent to 1 American tablespoon of fresh dill. Dried herbs can be substituted for fresh at a ratio of 1 to 3.
Depends where you go for it. Try growing your own,its so simple and tastes alot better.
You can substitute 1 tablespoon dill seed for 3 dill heads. The flavor will be less pungent than if you use fresh dill.
Use one full head of fresh dill (it looks a bit like a starburst) per quart jar.
About a four inch sprig of the fluffy, green part. ;)
Approximately 3/4 of a teaspoon should equal one dill head.
In Food Canning
One head of dill is usually sufficient if using pint jars. If using quarts you may want to double that amount.
You can't substitute the two. Fresh basil has a totally different flavor profile than its inferior counterpart in the dried version. Dried basil on its own almost can be compa…red to the taste of wood, whereas fresh basil has a beautiful somewhat sweet aroma and hints of a sweet mild peppery flavor.
Dried dill isn't as potent as fresh dill. Therefore, you will need about ½ cup of dried dill for every 1 ½ cups of pickles.
