Dill question, and an urging to start canning now!

Dill question, and an urging to start canning now!

I bought 4 sprigs of dill (for a total of 80 cents!) yesterday at the farmer's market to use while making pickles, and now that I'm done pickling I have most of it left. Any ideas of what I can do with all of this dill? Any favorite recipes that are dill-heavy? TIA! As a side note and a poor skill, I highly recommend canning this time of year. The pickles I made will be part of my X-mas gifts to one and all: they get one of everything I've canned all year plus a loaf of homemade bread I made X-mas Eve morning. I had to actually buy new jars, which is the biggest expense, and I still made 10 quarts of dill pickes for about $25: $10 worth of cukes, $10 worth of jars and lids, and $5 for flavorings (garlic, dill, salt, vinegar). If you ask around and check cragislist or freecycle, you'll get jars for cheap or free. I'll be canning blueberries (as a preserve, probably) later this week. U-pick prices are around $1.50 a quart, which sure beats the $5 store prices and is a welcome reprieve for this urban-dweller. If you plan ahead and take time to enjoy what is ripe all through the year, your X-mas budget can feel completely non-existant.
