Dill - The Gas Reliever

IMG_9303.JPG

One of my favorite foods growing up was dill pickles, and to this day, pretty much anything with dill will be gone lick-ity-split in our house.  Fresh dill is the best, but after a good season, harvesting dry seeds for pickling and canning is a great way to add digestive support to any food.  

A few healing qualities of dill:

  • Dill is the ultimate digestive aid, and has been used traditionally to dispel abdominal gas.  
  • It can be used along with fennel for colicky children, and when cooked in a meal adds a distinct taste of summer!  

Harvest fresh dill leaves anytime and add to salads, soups, pickling, or even eat by itself!
