WHAT IS DILL WEED?

Dill weed is the feathery leaves of the dill plant. Dill is a plant that can be found all year round and both its leaves and seeds can be used for cooking. 

WHAT IS DILL WEED USED FOR?

The feathery leaves of the dill plant add fresh green flavor to lighter dishes such as salads, seafood and vegetables. Also great in dips, spreads and homemade pickles. 

HOW TO STORE DILL WEED

Keep dried dill weed in an airtight jar similar to all herbs and spices away from heat and moisture. We recommend a spice cabinet that is away from the sink, stove and not facing direct sunlight. When properly stored, dried dill weed will generally stay at best quality for 3 years but we recommend to always check the best use date.  

FLAVORS THAT GO WITH DILL WEED:

Dill pairs nicely with these herbs and spices. Try them together the next time you're in the kitchen cooking something up for lunch or dinner.

  • Oregano: Meet oregano, a robust herb that comes in whole leaves or ground up, giving meals a peppery bite and a sweet, minty aroma. In Greek, oregano means “joy of the mountain." Even though it's super popular today, it actually wasn't wasn’t widely used in the U.S. until GIs returned from Italy during World War II. Our pure oregano is a delicious addition to any tomato dish, eggs and omelets, chicken, fish and pork, cooked vegetables, vinaigrettes and more. Consider it your go-to herb for that real Mediterranean flavor.
  • Thyme: Cultures all over the world look to thyme as a great source for its unmistakable, fresh aroma. One of the highest compliments to pay a Greek warrior, for instance, was to say he smelled of thyme. And in the Middle Ages, thyme was used to fend off nightmares. Today, our pure thyme holds its greatest place of honor in the kitchen as one of our most popular herbs.
