A pickle without dill is like a shot of whisky without a pickle juice chaser—it’s just not the same. Use the leaves, flowers, or seeds to impart that signature dill flavor in dressings, dips, and salads. And please don’t forget to put up enough pickles to get you through the winter. You’ll thank yourself later.
