Dill, Not just a pickle spice

Written by Litsa Bolontzakis. Posted in My thoughts

(Anethum – Graveoleus)

Dill The herb I love!

Dill the elegant herb, the herb I use more than any other!

Dill, the word comes from the Saxon word “Dilla”  which means to soothe. It is used as an aid for digestion – and as a tranquilizer because it contains the chemical Carvone.

I love it in my cooking…

Ah, the island of Crete is a gift to all of us!

So much to say about the island, the food, the weather and the people!

The sun only goes around because he can’t stand all the beauty of the island!

The food is so pure and so original, it inspires you, it makes you happy to be alive!

The people, how can you give them justice, their love, their hospitality, their generous spirit, their sense of humor, they are the only ones in the planet with all the characteristics of how a human should treat the XENO!

Blessed are the hard-working people of the island of Crete, they were given mountains and rocky land and they made it work with no complain, but with a happy disposition! 

I adore the island and its remarkable people!
