Dill is a member of the parsley family. The feathery leaves of dill have a pungent, tangy taste. Dried dill leaves are known as dill weed. Dried dill has less flavor than fresh dill, and it can lose even more flavor during cooking, so add it at the end of cooking. In contrast, the bitter flavor of the flat seeds of dill is enhanced by heating. Dill is used in dips, such as low-fat yogurt-based dips, or vegetable toppings. Dill is also used to season fish, chicken, eggs, potatoes, soup, pasta and a variety of vegetables. Dill freezes well. Simply wash and dry well, then seal in plastic freezer bags.
