In Search of Dill Heads

Where can you easily find Dill heads for use in making dill pickles. I cannot find them when I need them.

So, some of you might be wondering what a Dill head is. It’s the flowering part from the top of the dill plant.  Let it dry out on the plant and you’ll have dill seed.


Dill heads can be found in some grocery stores a little later in the season or at farmers’ markets.  Many folks grow their own to make sure they have a supply for the season.

Hope this helps.
