Floaty and ethereal, our Organic Dill Weed greets the nose with an earthy smell that fuses lemon and caraway, with a deeply vegetal core. Its flavor is not sharp, but it can be assertive. Organic Dill Weed begins with a clean and breezy herbal grassiness, with citrus flavors that dance on the top notes and a little bit of licorice tucked in the back. The flavor of Organic Dill Weed expresses itself up front, but has no bitter aftertaste and does not linger on the palate. It has an essential oil content of approximately 2% by weight.

Dill has been a valuable herb for about 5000 years; it was first written about by the Egyptians in 3000 BCE. Indigenous to the eastern Mediterranean region encompassing Greece and Turkey, dill was originally called anethum, recognizing its close relationship to anise, called anisum. It evolved as it made its way along the Mediterranean and up through Europe. Our modern word, dill, comes from the Old Norse word dylla, which means “to soothe”. Scandinavian women would often use dill as a remedy for colicky babies and for issues of adult digestion, but there is no modern medical evidence to support those tales today.

 

Tips From Our Kitchen

 

Organic Dill Weed’s flavor is easily diminished with heat, so it’s best to add this herb at the end of cooking time. It is a natural with lemony baked fish and goes wonderfully with potatoes, so add to potato salad or to latkes. Mix with yogurt and cucumber for a traditional Greek tzatziki sauce. It’s a standard ingredient in borscht, but you could deconstruct the borscht for a beet salad with dill vinaigrette. We also offer Organic Dill Seed if you’re looking for a sturdier dill that you can add at the beginning of cooking, for soups and braises.

Our Organic Dill Weed is cultivated in Egypt.

Wonderful Dill We use dill quite a bit and this dill is the very best. Great flavor and highest quality. The cost is much better than the junk spices you get in grocery store.

Big dill! I ordered a bunch a dried herbs from here and every one of them was top quality. As an herbalist we're taught to judge herbs by our senses: do look, smell, and taste like they did when they were alive? If so, you know they're top quality. Everything I ordered from Spices Inc was superb. And on another note, they really pack full every container. There weren't any air gaps in my bottles or bags. I really appreciate that added value.

Disappointing Lack of Flavor First, I am a big Spice Inc fan because they offer very fresh products and have great customer service. HOWEVER, the organic dill weed is terrible. There is no fresh, sweet taste. There is some dill flavor but it's dulled by a strong grassy taste. It's brown in color and not dark green. It tastes old. I happen to have a new unopened bottle of organic dill weed from a different company. I opened it up to compare the two. The bottled dill was green and had the sweet bright dill taste. It was night and day. I think Spices Inc. needs to stop selling their organic dill weed. It does not live up to their standards or quality.
