Everyone loves the taste of dill, from "dilly" breads to tasty fish sauces, dips and spreads--not to mention delicious dill pickles. Boughs of the attractive, ferny plant were used to ward off witches in the Middle Ages, and to crown Emperors in ancient Rome. It's historic, but really delicious, too.
