Dill Rubbed and Dried
What is Dill?
The Dill plant provides green leaves for the Dill herb, while the flat, oval fruits make the Dill seed spice. It's an annual herb related to celery that tends to replant itself and spread, which is good to know if you're considering planting it. Dill seeds are used in seasoning, such as in pickles. Like Chervil, Dill weed is delicate and works particularly well with eggs or in salads.
Where does Dill Come From?
Dill is native to Southern Russia, Western Africa, and the Mediterranean. It is part of the Umbelliferae family, which also includes Cumin and Parsley.
