Dill seed, the fruit of the dill plant (Anethum graveolens), boasts a rich and varied history dating back to ancient civilizations. The Greeks and Romans cultivated dill for its culinary and medicinal purposes, with records indicating its use for everything from indigestion to insomnia. Dill seeds spread throughout Europe and Asia along trade routes, becoming a staple spice throughout the continent.

Medicinally, dill seed has been used in traditional practices for centuries. In Ayurvedic medicine, dill seeds are considered carminative, stomachic, and diuretic. This means they may help relieve gas, promote digestion, and increase urination.

Culinary uses take center stage today, though. Dill seeds have a stronger, more pungent flavor than dill weed, the leafy part of the plant. Their citrusy, peppery notes make them a perfect addition to pickling brines, lending a signature flavor to cucumbers and other vegetables. In Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, dill seeds are commonly used in breads, potato dishes, and alongside fish and seafood. Their subtle licorice and caraway seed-like qualities add complexity to soups, stews, and even potato salad.

Dill seeds have also found their way into the realm of magic and folklore. Some cultures associated dill with wealth and prosperity, using it in charms and spells to attract good fortune. Others believed it offered protection from evil spirits and the evil eye. In Scandinavia, dill was linked to love and fidelity, often incorporated into wedding ceremonies or love potions.
