Dill seeds are the fruit of the dill plant and are pleasantly aromatic with a flavorful, yet bitter taste. Dill seed has been used in traditional herbal practices for its beneficial properties and is also a pungent culinary spice. Typical preparations include infusions, extractions, and macerating in liqueur or vinegar. Dill seed can also be used to flavor baked goods and pickling recipes.
"Dill seed" actually isn't seed but the flat, oval, dark brown whole fruits of the herb. The term "dill weed" refers to the green leaves (and sometimes stems) of the plant. Dill seed and dill weed have different chemical compositions, different uses in cooking, and different applications in herbal healing.
