In Old Norse, the word dill means “to lull” – it was mixed with water to help babies sleep.  Egyptians believed burying dill with their dead would protect them in the afterlife against hunger.

Although Dill has a unique and powerful flavor, it pairs well with a wide variety of foods including poultry, fish, salads, sauces, dips, starches, and vegetables.

Dill Weed

$7.25$19.60
(Based on 1 review)

A flavorful complement to foods, dill was also added to magic potions in the Middle Ages to protect homes and people from spells.

The flavor of dill has been described as citrus, fennel, and mint combined, and it’s best when added at the end of cooking to preserve the flavor.  Add Dill Weed to salads, soups, fish and shellfish, vegetables and sauces.

Jalapeño Chile Pepper

$8.50$23.00

Traditionally cultivated in Veracruz, Mexico, this Chile Pepper has also become a favorite of the Southwestern United States.  Not too hot and not too mild, it is delicate in its dried form and should be added to foods for finishing.

Just before serving, add to Southwestern dishes, guacamole, corn bread, salad dressings, eggs, potatoes and vegetables for a little kick.  It will lose its flavor and heat if added too early in the cooking process.

Morita Chipotle Chile Pepper

$9.00$13.00
(Based on 3 reviews)

The Chipotle Chile is the dried form of a mature red Jalapeño Pepper.  The Morita variety, by far the most common sold in the U.S., is smaller than the “True” Chipotle, and retains its dark, raisin-like appearance.

Add to Southwest and Central American dishes where the combination of smoky and hot flavors are desired.
