Put a bunch inside un-husked corn on the cob. Throw it on the grill and enjoy.

Also great with potatoes.

Persian recipes use dill extensively. We had a family friend from Persia who use to make the most amazing pilaf with fresh dill.

The rice was first parboiled (like pasta) and then drained in a colander when it was aldente.

Saute some potatoes in olive oil and season them with salt and healty dose of black pepper and add some frozen cooked lima beans and a generous sprinkle of lemon juice.

Now smear butter, oil or shortening on the bottom of a baking dish. A layer of rice goes on top of the grease. Then spread a nice generous helping of freshly chopped dill. Follow this by the sauteed potatoes and lima beans. Repeat. Cover and bake in the oven on low (200-250) for atleast an hour.

Serve with some sort of yogurt based salad. It is truly good, you just have to try it with an open mind.

Dill freezes well, too. Don't even chop it. Just clean and put in a baggie inthe freezer. When you need it, take the baggie and "crunch" it, which will shatter the dill into little pieces. Fresh dill flavor with little effort. My mother's favorite is to sprinkle this on lightly sauteed potatoes (especially new potatoes in season, sauteed in butter).
