Dill

Dill

Dill is a fresh and colorful herb that goes well with seafood, capers, potatoes, citrus fruits, and poultry.

We recommend using fresh dill as dried dill will quickly lose flavor.

In Poland, fresh dill is commonly mixed with sour cream and used as a dressing. Dill is also often used in Swedish cuisine.
