An informative sampling focused on herbs and tea with an occasional sprinkling of fairy dust and a glimpse into family activities too. The contributions to this blog is the combined effort created by the sisters of The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances.
David was playing in the spices and shot this fun photo. This is Dill Weed (the green) and Dill Seed.
Dill is often distinguished in recipes by using the word "weed" and "seed". The flavor of the seed is stronger then the leaf and it also has quite a different texture. Therefore, we don't suggest you substitute one for the other. We love to add dill weed to our veggies or lightly sprinkle it onto cucumber sandwiches and of course dill seed is a must have in pickles. Dill seed is often used in bread making while Dill leaf (weed) is used in salad dressings, vinegars, and sauces. A very easy annual to grow, often you can use the dill seeds in your cupboard to start your seedlings. Dill was known to 'dull' pain in colicky babies.
