History of Dill Seed
Dill (Anethum graveolens) derives its name from the Greek word “aneeton,” meaning “strong smell.” It’s no wonder it’s earned this title as dill seed emits a significant dry, spicy fragrance, similar to that of caraway and sweet fennel oils. It’s history of use is far-reaching; during Medieval times, the herb was used to ward off witchcraft. From the 5th through 11th centuries, Anglo-Saxon people revered the herb for skin care. Dill has also been an essential ingredient in Roman, Scandinavian and Indian cuisines, and is the core flavoring of dill pickles and many herbal teas!
