Dill is available year-round.
Dill averages 90 cm tall with wispy fern-life leaves. It has a flavour likened to the combination of anise, parsley, and celery with a mild lemon finish. The plant produces lacy yellow flowers that grow in flat-topped clusters called umbels. The blossoms have a fresh sour characteristic much like the herb itself and the dill pickles that they are synonymous with. Their flavour profile is a cross of lemon and parsley with mild anise notes.
Fresh Dill is used in a host of other dishes, including dips, potato salad, soups, sauces, vegetables, and breads. Having a natural affinity, dill is an excellent partner for fish, especially salmon. Dill blends well with yogurt, and cheese, and makes a great wine vinegar. Mix spunky dill with tomato soups, egg dishes, potatoes, cream, and cucumbers for a delightful flavour addition.
Dill is rich in potassium
