It is best to use fresh dill as soon as possible. For short-term storage, wrap dill in a damp towel or place upright in a container with an inch of water and refrigerate. For long-term storage, try drying your dill. We often freeze dill just as it is bunched by placing it in a freezer bag. When you need a bit, just trim some off the frozen bunch and place the rest back in the freezer.
