Dill weed should have a rich green color, never gray or brown. Try it dusted on fish fillets or added to vegetable sauces and chowder, but be sure to add this herb just prior to serving as heat will deteriorate the fine flavor. Perfect with chilled, raw vegetable dishes as well.
MEDICINAL: Dill tea is calming, making it useful for insomnia, jitteriness and upset stomach. It can also have a diuretic effect.
