Dill

Jun 25, 2019

You'll never guess which family this centuries-old herb is a part of... if you guessed the carrot family, you must be a produce expert too!

Appearance & Flavor 
This herb with thin stalks and feathery leaves tastes like celery, parsley, and anise with a lemon finish. Chose herbs that have a fresh scent. Dill is green, so avoid those with brown or wilted leaves.

Ways to Enjoy 
Dill can be used fresh, cooked, or simply as a garnish. When tossing it into sauces, remember it has a strong flavor that you may want to use sparingly. Hosting a BBQ? Trust us, you'll have the best corn on the cob on the block with this recipe

Availability & Origin
Dill grows year-round. Native to Southern Russia and the Mediterranean, dill is now grown all over the US and in Western Canada.

Storage
Dill is a delicate herb that needs to be used as soon as possible. Store in a plastic bag with some air in the crisper drawer and you may get two days out of it.
