5. Dill

Dill has been used to soothe the digestive tract and treat heartburn, colic, and gas for thousands of years. The herb has an antifoaming action that suggests why it may help break up gas bubbles. Like parsley, dill is rich in chlorophyll, which is good to sweeten the breath.

Dill goes with fish, smoked fish, herrings, squid, calamari, cuttlefish, and octopus, eggs, cabbages, brussels sprouts and kale, cucumber, beetroot, capers, dried beans, fresh white cheese, green beans, horseradish, mayonnaise, potatoes, rice, sauerkraut, sour cream, tomatoes, zucchini.

    Morning Kate, Dill is top of my list for some of its ‘healing’ powers. Get plenty of gas bubbles here in the swamp.
    A point for the teaser answer; and a happy St. Patricks Day to you.
