Frontier Co-op: Ethically Sourced Spices Available at Vitacost
Frontier Co-Op Organic Dill Seed Whole Description
- Certified Organic
Frontier Co-op® Organic Dill Seed comes from the dill plant (Anethum graveolens), which is a spice that belongs to the celery family. Dill contains seeds that are used for pickled foods, vegetables, stews, and more. The seeds are flat, brown fruits of the dill plant.
A common addition to summer herb gardens, dill is quite famous when it comes to pickling cucumbers (making pickles). It is often utilized as a pickling spice for more than just pickles – adding a distinct, enhanced flavor to canned goods.
Frontier Co-op Dill Seed is a fruit (unofficially called a seed) that features a grassy, licorice-like flavor. It resembles the caraway plant but with lesser taste and a different type of use. Use these fruits sparingly in food to better manage the aroma they deliver, which is a powerful blend of citrus, fennel, and mint!
Frontier Co-op Organic Dill Seed is 100% Kosher certified, organic, and non-irradiated. This dill seed is cultivated and processed in Egypt. It is grown in moist, well-drained soil under full sunlight to improve its flavor. There are no artificial additives or chemicals used at any stage of harvesting and manufacturing.

Suggested Uses: Ground dill seed is generally interchangeable with the whole seed in recipes. It works well in pickling, herb butters, sauces, and with fish. Meat packers also use the ground seed for seasoning liverwurst, bologna and frankfurters.
Dill complements salads (potato, coleslaw, macaroni) and salad dressings, dips, sauces and gravies, cottage or cream cheese, breads, soups and egg, bean, chicken and meat dishes. Also try it in sweets like cakes, pastries and apple pie and with vegetables like beets, cabbage (especially sauerkraut), avocado, eggplant, parsnips, pumpkin, squash, broccoli, cauliflower, turnips, potatoes, green beans and tomatoes.
