Drowning in Dried Dill
A huge bag of bright green dried dill grabbed my eye on a recent trip to a Lebanese market. I have absolutely no idea what to do with it. Are there recipes out there that could make a serious dent in it? I've come across some ideas, but they all seem to require not much more than a teaspoon or two. I'm thinking more along the lines of a half cup or more...
I had the same problem a few years ago. So much heavenly herby smell, so few places where it fit. The only recipes were it worked was potatoes: fries, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, latkes, and such. We ended up tossing 2/3 of the bag of dried dill we had, simply because it lost its power.
Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? Dried dill is excellent in mashed potatoes.
Greeks use a ton of dill in their vegetable dishes.
Dill pairs nicely with mustard - maybe you can do a cold dill/mustard-based potato salad?
Dill is also great with salmon.
A half cup is pushing it for a dried herb, but it will last so don't feel pressured to use at ton of it straight-away!
