Dill

Dill is an herb that is native to Europe and Asia. It is a member of the parsley family and is closely related to fennel, caraway, and cumin. Dill has a feathery appearance and a fresh, licorice-like flavor.

Dill can be eaten fresh, dried, or ground. It is a popular ingredient in pickles, sauerkraut, and other fermented foods. Dill can also be added to soups, stews, salads, and sauces.

Here are some tips for using dill:

  • Fresh dill has the strongest flavor. If you can, use fresh dill whenever possible.
  • Dried dill has a more subtle flavor. If you are using dried dill, add it to your dish early in the cooking process so that it has time to release its flavor.
  • Dill can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. It is a popular ingredient in baked goods, such as breads and muffins, as well as savory dishes, such as fish and chicken.
