How to Dry Fresh Dill?

Answer

Drying dill is a great way to store the herb so that it will last longer after you have picked it. To dry fresh dill, spread a layer of the dill leaves on a baking sheet and place in the oven at 110 degrees Fahrenheit/40 degrees Celsius for 6-8 hours or in the microwave for 3 minutes. Remove the dried leaves from the stems and crush them up. Place in an airtight container and store away from direct sunlight.
