Grandma's Dill

This is a great recipe for those times when I only need 1 T of dill for a sauce or garnish and am left with a whole bunch of it. Who would have thought dill could be so tasty on its own?? Ah, Grandma...

"Inside is more fresh."

From Vicky's Facebook:
Dill promotes good digestion and sleep. It is also prescribed for reducing flatulence and in cases of nausea. A tea made of the dill infusion can benefit little babies for lessening gases and improving digestion. Some people believe that the smell of dill will cure hiccups.

Due to several unique qualities of the dill, it is very beneficial to our health. The benefits of dill are the flavonoids, which includes vicenin and kaempferol; and the monoterpenes, which includes anethofuran, limonene and carvone.

The oils found in the dill plant have a beneficial quality that is described as a "chemoprotective" herb. This quality can benefit most cigarette smokers. It is a proven fact that it can neutralize certain parts of not only cigarette smoke, but also charcoal smoke, and the smoke produced by burning trash which are harmful to our health.

In conclusion, she says, "Well, it's just tasty. Enjoy dill today =)". Ok, Dr. Chang!
1 T Black Sesame oil
1/2" ginger, sliced or julienned
1 bunch of dill
1 T rice wine
1 T soy sauce
After washing the dill, cut into 2" segments down through the whole stem of the bunch. Heat a pan with the oil until hot then add the ginger. After 1-2 minutes, add the dill and cook until tender. Near the end, make a well in the pan and pour in the wine, cook a little longer and then add the soy sauce.

Serves 1-2
