Dill is also called cucumber herb, because it is often used to season fresh cucumber salad or to pickle gherkins or mustard gherkins. Dill also harmonises well with light sauces, remoulade, herb vinegar and fish. The best known is probably the Graved Salmon, which is marinated with dill. Fresh dill is very aromatic and tastes similar to fennel or aniseed slightly spicy-sweetish. The dried seeds taste similar to caraway. Dried dill unfortunately loses a lot of its aroma. The dill uses the fine feathery leaves, partly also the tender young stems, flowers and dried seeds. Dill belongs to the Doldenblütler family. It originates from Central Asia, but also grows in Europe. Dill is a spice and medicinal plant. Due to its essential oils, dill has an appetising, antispasmodic and digestive effect.
