Dill is April's SPICE OF THE MONTH!

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  - we hope you love cooking with it as much as we do! Check out our other great recipes this month that feature this great spice!
