Frontier Herb Dill Weed - City and Sifted - .35 oz
by Frontier Herb
Aromatic dill weed is more delicately flavored than the seed from the same plant. It enhances rather than dominates and is delicious in salads, sauces, light gravies, and with fish and grains. Botanical Name: Anethum graveolens L.
Product Notes: The fresh, subtle flavor of dill weed is an excellent complement to fish dishes, cream soups, salads, mild dips, and poultry recipes.
Processing Notes: Dill weed is dried by laying the whole plant on
vented racks inside a drier unit, at a 30 degree angle.
The rack's vented surface and angle of placement allows
air to circulate freely through the plant material.
Heated air (not exceeding 110 degrees Fahrenheit) is
circulated through the drier, while a dehumidifier removes
moisture. It is necessary to expose the plants to both a
heat source and a dehumidifier to prevent them from
molding or decomposing in their own moisture. The plant
material remains in the drier until a moisture level of
approximately 8% is reached. After drying, the leaf and
stem is separated from the dill tops. Kosher: KSA Certified
