Can I use dill seeds that are not completely dry and brown to make pickles? I have buckets of cucumbers and lots of dill plants that are not quite ready.

My sister in law makes absolutely great dill pickles. She buys a couple of bunches of the green dill plant and we just stuffed a branch or two and stem pieces as well, per jar. None of the seeds were brown as I recall. Maybe just use a little more if you are used to using them brown.
I use fresh dill from my garden all the time. I didn't know you were supposed to wait until it turned brown. My pickles are better than store bought. (08/08/2009)
