The Dill is a herb which belongs to the family of Umbelliferae. The seed is quite
aromatic, medium-small sized, oval-shaped, plate and beige coloured. Dill sprouts
are ready in about 8-10 days. The sprouting process is rather delicate: the seeds
and the sprouts must be kept well moisturized, but not much too wet.
Dill sprouts are rich in vitamins and minerals. They help digestion, they are diuretic,
antispasmodic and vermifugal.
Their taste is a mixture of Fennel and Anise. Dill sprouts make all dishes delicate,
giving fragrance and taste. They are delicious with fish, but they are also
recommended with fresh cheese and omelettes.
