Cooking with Dill….Texas B&B Cooking Instructor

March 24th, 2010 by Pamela Murski

Dill is a herb that reseeds in our gardens in  southern  regions of Texas and comes up in  early Spring,  bolting by early to mid summer depending on the weather.  In some locals it can be overwintered if no serious freeze occur.  It is  one of the herbs we love using in spring and summer classes at the B&B during our classes and for our on cooking pleasure.

Recently, Pamela Murski, cooking instructor and innkeeper at Murski Homestead, gave a Dill cooking demonstration during a program for the Herb Society of America, Pioneer Unit hosted by  her culinary group.  Use my recipe  below as a dip  for crudites, as  a sauce on poached/pan fried fish or thinned with a little whole milk  for a delectable dressing for  fresh  spring greens…..
