Item No: H006
Scientific name: Anethum graveolens
Fresh and dried dill leaves are widely used as herbs. The leaves of dill are aromatic and are used to flavor many foods such as gravlax (cured salmon), borscht and other soups, as well as pickles (where the dill flower is sometimes used). Dill is often added to fish. Dill is best when used fresh as it loses its flavor rapidly if dried; however, freeze-dried dill leaves retain their flavor relatively well for a few months. It is used to improve the operation of the kidney and stomach, treat gastrointestinal disorders, prevent constipation.
