I live in the desert and fresh dill heads will never be found here, but I can get great restaurant quality fresh dill, minus the heads. Can I substitute? If so, in roughly equal quantities?

I've been known to use either fresh dill or dried with a few dill seeds added.

Well, I tried dry seed and fresh foliage, no heads. Keep your fingers crossed!

It works fine...sometimes if dill weed is scarce, I've just used the seeds with good results.
