Dill Weed Dried Leaves

Both dill weed (dried leaves) and dill seed come from the same plant. Although we prefer using the dried leaves (see photo) in our recipes, fresh, dried or frozen dill seeds and flowers, as well as leaves, are also used. The flavor of dill weed has been described as bright, tangy, clean, and pungent. In use since ancient times, dill is indigenous to Europe. A member of the carrot family, or Umbelliferae, dill weed (Anethum graveolens) is a self-seeding annual with delicate lacy aromatic foliage, reaching a height of 3 feet. See the nutritional chart below.
