Default REC - Cottage Dill Loaf

This is such a delicious bread! Mom used to make it all the time.
Unfortunately, I never got her recipe. At one of my employers, I
worked with a woman who turned out to have been one of Mom's
co-workers, and she had the recipe! So this is very special to me. If
only I had some yeast - there's volunteer dill growing all over the
yard from last year. LOL!

I hope someone tries and enjoys this bread. It's wonderful.

How much fresh dillweed would you use? [snipped recipe called for 1
Tbsp dill seed] I have dill all over the place.

I'm really not sure. I've only made this a couple times, and that was
with Mom, who's been gone for 22 years now. Hopefully, someone more
knowledgabe than myself will come along with the answer.

I harvested my dill seeds last year, and have enough for an average
lifetime. The plan was for pickles, but you know me and plans.

Generally, 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs equal one teaspoon of dry. However, 3
tablespoons of fresh dill does seem excessive in this recipe. Perhaps try 1-
1/2 to 2 tablespoons.

How about fat-free (still wet, rather than 'dry cottage cheese'). And
what if you rinsed it and drained it? Any thoughts?

I don't know why fat-free wouldn't work. I'm not a bread baker, so
don't take my word for anything.

This is yummy bread. If you like it, feel free to enter it in the
State Fair. I'd feel so good if Mom's bread won a ribbon!
