Uses in the Kitchen
Ideal for the busy chef, these herbs are already conveniently chopped and washed to save time.

Into a white sauce, over fish, over new potatoes or carrots, into a salad dressing or as a refreshing alternative to parsley in omelettes, quiches and salads.

Origins
Dill Weed belongs to the parsley family and is known for its feathery leaves. The word "Dill" comes from an old Norse word meaning 'to lull' due to their calming effect on the digestive tract. It was especially given to crying babies suffering from colic. The Greeks used Dill as a remedy for hiccups. Dill is also reputed to cure hiccups, stomach aches, insomnia, and bad breath. Dill's most famous culinary use - the Dill pickle - is at least 400 years old.

Flavour & Aroma
A clean fragrant aroma with a light lemony, sweet anise flavour.
