How to Harvest Dill and Cilantro Seed

Dill and Cilantro are both annual herbs that are easy to grow, harvest, and can be used in a number of dishes. Dill is probably most known for pickling, Cilantro for salsas.







I made this video last year, before we had this blog. Since it's that time of the year, I thought I'd re-share.



One change I have made in harvesting is choosing to gently roll the dried heads between 2 sheets of paper to dislodge the seeds from the stems, rather than using the back-and-forth cups method for the seed I'm saving just for re-planting.
