Edible, common seasoning. Yellowish flat-topped flower umbrella with recognizable dill smell. Thin stringy fern-like leaves with famous dill smell and taste. Its these stringy “leaves” and seeds that are what we call “dill” to season our foods. Dill (especially the seeds) is great for digestion, stomach, gas, colic, intestinal, and urinary issues. Some say sniffing dill cured hiccups. Try juicing. Anti-spasmodic and antibacterial. Warning- do not confuse with poisonous parsley varieties.
