Dill is April's SPICE OF THE MONTH! Dill  is widely grown in Eurasia where its leaves and seeds are used as a herb or spice for flavouring food. Like caraway, the fernlike leaves of dill are aromatic and are used to flavor many foods such as gravlax (cured salmon) and other fish dishes, borscht and other soups, as well as pickles (where the dill flower is sometimes used).

One tablespoon chopped fresh dill = 1 teaspoon dried dill weed. The flavor of dill weed diminishes greatly the longer it is cooked. Add it at the last minute for full flavor and aroma.
