Q.I have frozen dill. When it thawed there was a red liquid, what is it? Is the dill safe to use?

The dill was picked and put in food saver bags last year. When I thawed it in the refrigerator and opened the bag a red liquid appeared. It looked like the dill was bleeding. Can I still use the dill?

It is best to store dill dried, and not frozen. It will break down and liquify. This will not be harmful in any way, but the taste may be affected quite drastically.
