Our Organic Dill Seeds are derived from the dill plant, after the flat umbrella shaped flowers give way to seeds each fall. The dill seeds have a unique flavor profile, slightly bitter and delicate in taste, similar to caraway, but also resembling that of dried dill weed. The dill seeds may lack the dominance of dill weed, but still play an important role in various recipes and diets alike.
Dill seed actually isn‰۪t a seed, but the oval dark brown fruit of the herb that was planted by the Vikings as a remedy for colic in babies. Dill grows very easy which suited the Viking style of life and the plant spread quickly over large parts of Europe. The more civilized parts of the European population found culinary use for the herb, the weed was used to flavor pickled vegetables and to cure fish, while the seeds, that emerge from the plant in fall, are used for hearty autumn dishes.
