Dill
Dill is a popular ingredient in the cuisine of countries as diverse as Iran, Spain, Turkey, Germany, Russia and Sweden.
The feathery fronds of fresh dill have a very mild aniseed flavour.

Finely chopped fresh dill brings bright aroma and colour to rice pilafs and creamy sauces and dressings. Salmon, white fish, potatoes, broad beans, spinach and cucumber are other classic matches.
