I want to make Dilly Beans, can I substitute Dill Seed or Dill Weed? If so, how much would equal a head of Dill?
Kathleen - this is what I found. Not the best info - but better then nothing.
You can substitute 2 to 3 tablespoons of dill seed for 4 to 6 heads of fresh dill.1 teaspoon dried dill = 1 tablespoon fresh dill

My Dilly Bean recipe calls for 1/2 t of dill seeds per pint jar. I add fresh dill heads also if I have them. Works OK without them.
I always use dill seeds instead of fresh dill. 1/2 tsp. per pint jar.
thanks so much for the information!! I am going to go make the notation on my recipe right now!!
Would one of you mind posting your recipe for the Dilly Beans? I would appreciate a T & T recipe.
Thank you in advance!
