Dill is a perennial herb originally from Eastern Europe. To the Ancient Greeks the presence of dill was regarded as a sign of prosperity.In the 8th century it was used to relieve hiccups and thus served at banquets. Dill has also been known to be used as a love portion in the middle ages, so maybe this valentines you might want it on the menu! It was also used to keep witches away!
The word dill stems from the old English “dile” meaning to lull or soothe. It has traditionally been used with fish and in soups. It is also best to use fresh or frozen as it loses its flavor quickly.
