Steenbergs organic dill seed is commonly used in breads and pickles particularly pickled herrings. Organic dill seed is also great for easing an upset stomach or digestive problem, so next time you go overboard on rich, oily foods, try a warm cup of aromatic dill seed herbal tea.  Organic dill seeds have a robust flavour - full of anise character and a hint of caraway seeds.


Dill plants look really delicate and wimpy, but they are actually a really hardy annual. Dill plants grow to about 1m (3ft) high. The dill plant has wispy, hair-like leaves on the top of the smooth stems. The dill flowers are small, pale-yellow flowers. Fresh dill herb which is also called dill weed, dill tips or dill tops has a parsley-like aroma, with hints of anise. On drying, the dill tips become a dark-green and are processed to be fine thin lengths about 2-4mm long. The aroma is more intense than the fresh herb, so dill herb is grassy, aromatic with flavours of parsley and anise. The umbrella-shaped flower heads produce the fruits after flowering and are pale brown with three fine, lighter coloured lines along the length of the seed. Dill fruit has two seeds, both of which are 4mm long and oval, however they usually split on processing so you normally only get half the fruit. Dill seeds are robust in flavour with a clear anise character and a hint of caraway. For more on dill, try Gernot Katzer Spice Pages and Wikipedia.
