Dill is grown widely in Eurasia where its leaves and seeds are used as a herb or spice for flavouring food.
Dried dill has a fresh, herbal aroma that recalls parsley, fennel, and caraway. It has a less pronounced anise flavor than fresh dill. Dried Dill leaves are a great way to flavor salad dressings, egg dishes, or any kind of poultry. Dried dill is also a great way to flavor soups, pickles, and vegetables of all sorts.
