Dill: benefits and harms

If you suddenly notice that dill has started to deteriorate, don't rush to throw it away. The herbs can be preserved and stored for the winter. At the same time, you don't have to sterilize anything.


  • dill - 400 g
  • salt - 100 g

Method of preparation:

1. First, you need to prepare the greens for cooking, namely, rinse them several times in cold water until they become transparent. Next, separate the soft branches from the hard stems as only the tender parts will be needed for pickling. Finally, put the dill on paper towels and dry it well.

2. When the herbs are prepared, you can move on to the next step, which is chopping. You need to chop the dill in the way you will add it to your dishes later: it all depends on your preferences.

3. After that, mix the chopped dill with salt. It is best to do this in a deep bowl and at the same time knead the herbs with your hands to make them juice. Leave them for 30 minutes.

4. When the time is up, put the dill in sterilized jars tightly so that there are no gaps and no air gets in.
