June 10th is National Herbs and Spices Day and we are focusing on Dill: a great summer herb that can add a lift of flavor to the dishes you cook. Dill has traditionally been used in pickling (dill pickles) and to delicately season fish, but it has so many other uses.
Dill grows in the early spring and is in season during the summer. The fronds are picked and used as the herb. Usually the root is not used in American cooking. Both the flowers and leaves are edible.
