Frontier Natural Products, Cut & Sifted Dill Weed, 16 oz (453 g) (Discontinued Item)
- Anethum Graveolens
Aromatic dill weed is more delicately flavored than the seed from the same plant. It enhances rather than dominates and is delicious in salads, sauces, light gravies, and with fish and grains.
Dill's flavor has been described as a mix of anise, parsley and celery, its aroma as a combination of citrus, fennel and mint. The color and more delicate flavor of dill weed enhance rather than dominate a dish.
Dill is best when added at the end of cooking, or in recipes that require little or no cooking, because the longer you cook it, the weaker its flavor. For that reason, dill weed is successfully used in quick-cooking sauces, salads and dressings, while dill seed is suitable for dishes that require longer cooking.
While dill's claim to fame is the dill pickle, it's also excellent with fish, and in salads (potato, coleslaw, macaroni) and salad dressings, dips, sauces and gravies, cottage or cream cheese, breads, soups, and egg, bean, chicken, grain and meat dishes.
Also try it in sweets like cakes, pastries and apple pie and with vegetables like beets, cabbage (especially sauerkraut), avocado, eggplant, parsnips, pumpkin, squash, broccoli, cauliflower, turnips, potatoes, green beans and tomatoes.
Blend 1 to 2 tablespoons of dill weed with softened cream cheese to create a tasty dip.
Fresh as the Plant
Not so flavorful

I was hoping that the taste of this dill weed would be bold n flavorful. As others have repeatedly stated- this kind is so very bland. Altho the smell us goodm but mild. I can barely taste this. Whenever i do use this i wil hav 2 use so much uv it. I prefer fresh dill which is xtremely tasty n taste like pickles. I wont b purchasing this brand again. Not evry 1 will hav the same experience. I just dont like it.

Unless you like dill and use alot, I can't recommend it. It has a nice strong dill smell, so its the real thing. I'm just alone so its entirely to much for me.
A money saver!

It's not as good as home-grown dill, but still very good. The bag will last a long time, as it is really huge
