Q.

Can baby dill be used for canning?

A.

While our bulk baby dill can be used to flavor brines and other liquids to be used in canning, it is much more tender, delicate, and heat-sensitive than mature dill.  It will probably wilt when exposed to canning temperatures, and has a more subtle flavor that chefs love, but is better suited for use raw or only very gently cooked.

At most we’d recommend using it in quick-pickles that will be consumed in a few days (see how to quick-pickle vegetables for more info). 

It’s probably best to use mature dill in canned foods instead, as it’s a little more durable.
