Did you know the dill plant is called “dill weed” because it self-seeds, spreading itself all over the garden like a weed? Dill is an herb that produces two important ingredients for cooking: leaves and seeds. Ferny, fragrant dill leaves are used both dried and fresh to season and garnish salmon and other fish, poultry, egg, and potato dishes, plus salads, soups, and stews. Dill seeds, on the other hand, have a spicier, more intense flavor and are often used with preserved foods like dill pickles. Discover all the great flavor companions for dill.
