Chop enough of the feathery leaves of dill to make one-quarter cup. Pour boiling water over them, let stand for one minute, and drain. Pound the leaves to a paste in a mortar; or put them in the container of an electric blender with one tablespoon lemon juice and purée the leaves. Stir the purée into one-half to one cup softened butter. Add additional lemon juice and salt to taste. Serve as a cold butter or as a hot sauce with fish dishes.
