If there’s one herb that’s a necessity in my herb garden, it’s dill. And for those of you growing herbs in containers, try Dukat or Fernleaf dill, both smaller varieties of the old fashioned Mammoth Dill.
To liven up carrots, sauté sliced or julienned carrots in a bit of butter. Right before serving, sprinkle on a shower of fresh dill leaves, salt and pepper.
