Dill as 'main' vegetable?
I was trying to explain the joys of dill to a picky five year-old the other day and wasn't getting far with the usual reasons: it's great with tomatoes; it smells nice; it's easy to grow. Finally, I told her that it 'tasted like summer', and she accepted that.
I love dill so much, in fact, that I don't want to use it as an herb, but as a steamed or raw vegetable. Does anyone know of a variety grown for its stalks instead of for the weed (fronds)? I'm hoping that someone can point me to something that is the Florence Fennel version of dill.
