Hi Katherine

Dill leaves are sold both dried or fresh. Dried versions are found in all supermarkets, under Spices and herb sections. Fresh ones are sold in tiny bags of 50g or more, usually found in the fresh vegetables sections.

For dried dill leaves, its often pack in tiny plastic containers under the brand of McCormick.

a small jar lasts very long. If you buy it, and don't use often, best to keep it in the freezer.

of course you can use other pots to cook this soup. In the past, my mom only uses the Renner ware pots(stainless steel, heavy duty pots). For me, I used it cook this in a slow cooker.

Hi Gina

Cooked this on Sunday for family gathering and everyone gave the thumbs up. I added some celery to it. DS especially ask me to keep the soup for him for next day even though no meat nor vegetables left. But alas the balance was souped up by my DH with french loaf for his supper . Tks your mum for the recipe.

I usually use Maggi. If not, its Del Monte brand(which is slightly more expensive). But usually, my hubby buys it ..whatever that is on offer.
