Can You Freeze Fresh Dill?

Answer

Yes, fresh dill can be frozen. In fact it helps to lock in the intense flavor more than drying does. You will want to harvest dill before it blossoms for the best flavor. Clip the sprigs of dill close to the main stem of the plant. Rinse the dill in cold water to remove any debris. Blanche the dill in boiling water until it changes color after a moment or two. Rinse the sprigs under cold running water or place in a bowl of ice water, so it doesn’t continue to cook. Blot dry and place in a freezer bag, making sure to squeeze out the air and seal.
