Carol,

Not Connie, but I guess by now you already know it should taste just fine. Enjoy!!

Hi Pat. I tasted it and it was OK, although somewhat bland, I thought. Stupid question, the recipe was calling for the dried dill in the shaker container, right?? As the dill seemed to be very blase' when I tasted it straight from the container. I have no idea how old my dill was, so maybe that was the issue???

Dried Dill only has a shelf life of about 6 months...
after that the flavor goes away rather quickly...
I keep most other dried herbs & spices longer, but dill seems to go south quickly...

when we use dill, we usually try to get fresh dill at the supermarket of farm stand...
supermarkets here in NY/NJ area have fresh dill all year long now...

And once you get it home, stick it in a glass and add water 1/3 up from the bottom and refridgerate. Stays fresh for weeks, add more water when necessary. Love fresh dill!

OK, maybe I'll go this week and get a new container of dried dill. I doubt I could find fresh dill around here. We're in the boonies.

Another thought for you, Carol. I never realized or thought about dried dill having a shelf life so I'm embarassed to say how old mine might have been but regardless, it never turns out to be bland.....so, did you try the Lawry's seasoned salt (the red stuff) in place of the msg? Can't say for sure but that might have made a difference, too.

Carol, a little Kosher or Sea salt could also spruce up the dill flavor...

I just left out the MSG alltogether. It did seem like it could have used some salt. I have kosher salt, so will try a bit of that.

Carol,
How far are you from Winter Park? There is a Penzies Spice store there which has a HUGE selection of herbs and spices and the quality is tops. They also offer small sizes too, so you tend to use it up before it looses it's flavor.

I wouldn't substitute fresh dill for dry in a dip recipe anyway. The dry will have a more intense flavor, and will be rehydrated by the liquids in the dip. I agree with those who think that the dip needs some additional seasoning if it called for accent and you omitted that. Some type of seasoning salt is probably the answer, although just plain salt might do the trick.
