Dill is easy to recognize by its fine, needle-like soft leaves. The dill plant originates from the plant family of umbellifers, like fennel and chervil. Verstegen's dill is made of the tops of dill plants that are not quite ripe yet, as these fresh, unripe tops provide the finest flavour.
They are dried as soon as possible after harvesting in order to preserve their delicate flavour. Add dill as the final ingredient to a dish. Do not boil dill as it will lose its taste.
