Tackle it Tuesday - Pickles and Ingredient Substitutions
I needed to can dill pickles but I didn't have any dill heads. Help! What happened was that my husband accidentally tilled up all of the dill I had growing in my garden. Could I substitute dill seed and/or dill weed? The answer is yes! According to the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving, you can sub 1 to 2 tsp. dill seeds or 2 tsp. dried dill weed per head of fresh dill. Whew!
