Dill is an universal favorite. The word "dill" comes from the Norwegian "dilla" meaning "to sooth," as medicinal powers were attributed to it. Almost everybody likes dill, and it appears in nearly every cuisine in the world. It is a deliciou s addition to sour cream, vegetables, potato salad or casseroles. It is wonderful with fish. Dill seed is aromatic, slightly pungent, light brown with a strong but pleasing flavor. We find that dill grown in the northern part of India produces larger seeds which have higher oil content. Egyptian dill has a cleaner taste and is our first choice. Dillweed is used to garnish as well as flavor.
