Dill essential oil can give your dishes that special flavor. What’s the difference you might ask in just using dill weed? Essential oils are much more concentrated and give your dishes a fresh and powerful flavor that herbs cannot do. Don’t get me wrong, I still use herbs but when I want an extra punch in my dishes I turn to essential oils. Here’s 2 of my favorite dill recipes.
- 1 cup sour cream

- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 5 Tbsp. minced onion
