Stevia Leaf Organic


Stevia Leaf Organic

 


Even though Stevia is an herb that is native to Central and South America we grow it here at HOME FARM HERBERY right here in Kentucky. It is a natural sweetener that is a healthier alternative to sugar or artificial sweeteners. Stevia does not affect blood sugar levels making it a suitable option for most diabetics. Because stevia leaf powder is about 15 times sweeter than sugar, and the powder and liquid extract is around 300 times sweeter, you can use much less stevia than regular sugar to sweeten foods and beverages. In late 2008 the Food and Drug Administration approved stevia as GRAS (generally regarded as safe).

 

Home Farm Herbery Organic Stevia Dried Leaf comes with a FREE Stevia Conversion Chart and some free recipes.  You will love it. Buy today.

Everything You Wanted to Know About Dill Weed and Then Some©

Everything You Wanted to Know About Dill Weed and Then Some©

by Arlene Wright-Correll
Home Farm Herbery




Dill weed is a really unique perennial herbal plant that we grow at Home Farm Herbery not only for its leaves, but also for its seeds since both are used as a seasoning and then of course we also let some go to seed to share it with our on-line store friends. Dill is a member of the Umbelliferae family, a large group of flowering herbs and spices, which include caraway, parsley, cumin, fennel, etc.

Technically and botanically it belongs within the family of Apiaceae, of the genus: Anethumand scientifically named as Anethum graveolens for all you Latin Lovers and I mean the language.

Dill is a native of the Mediterranean and East European regions and has been used in preparation of many popular dishes in Mediterranean and European cuisine since ancient times. The Dill plant requires warm summer climates with well-drained fertile soil to flourish. We gave it a warm sunny spot and amended our Kentucky clay with a lot of gravel. It seems to love it as it grows from 1 to 2 feet in height and features dark-green leaves (sprigs) that are wispy and fern-like, have a soft texture with rich pleasant aroma and sweet taste.



Dill seeds, used as spice, are similar in taste and appearance to caraway seeds and often we make dill rye bread and caraway rye bread. Dill seeds feature light brown color, oval shape with vertical ridges and flavor that is aromatic, sweet, and citrus, but they are also slightly bitter in taste.



There are quite a lot of health benefits to Dill and they include being low in calories and contain no cholesterol while containing contains many anti-oxidants, vitamins like niacin, pyridoxine, etc., and dietary fibers, which help to control blood cholesterol levels. Of course dill weed contains numerous plant derived chemical compounds that are known to have been anti-oxidant, disease preventing, and health promoting properties.

It is also rich in many vital vitamins, including folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin A, ß-carotene, vitamin-C that is essential for optimum metabolism inside the human body.

As a 21 year cancer survivor I am always interested in healthy information and especially the qualities of culinary herbs such as Dill because Vitamin-A and beta carotene are natural flavonoid antioxidants. 100 grams of dill weed sprigs provide 7718 IU or 257% of recommended-daily levels of this vitamin. Vitamin A is also required for maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin and is essential for good eye-sight. Consumption of natural foods rich in flavonoids helps the human body to protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.

The sprigs of the dill leaves and its seeds contain many essential volatile oils such as d-carvone, dillapiol, DHC, eugenol, limonene, terpinene and myristicin. My research shows that the essential oil, Eugenol in the dill has been in therapeutic usage as local-anesthetic and anti-septic. Eugenol has also been found to reduce blood sugar levels in diabetics and I would suggest you do some research of your own on this last sentence.

Further research suggests that Dill oil, extracted from dill seeds has anti-spasmodic, carminative, digestive, and disinfectant, galactagogue (helps breast milk secretion), and sedative properties.

Fresh dill herb is an excellent source of antioxidant vitamin; vitamin-C. 100 grams contain about 85 mg or 140% of vitamin C. Vitamin-C helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals.

Many users of dill do not know that Dill weed is a good source of minerals like copper, potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium. Copper is a cofactor for many vital enzymes, including cytochrome c-oxidase and superoxide dismutase (other minerals function as cofactors for this enzyme are manganese and zinc).

The list goes on and on and I wonder why more people are not putting this great little health provider into their diets or at least into their foods.



Zinc is a co-factor in many enzymes that regulate growth and development, sperm generation, digestion and nucleic acid synthesis. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure. Manganese is used by the body as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase.

Further research shows that the Dill herb has all the characters to consider it has one of the most valuable functional foods. 100 grams of dill weed provides only 43 calories, but its phyto-nutrients profile is no less than any other high-calorie food source; be it nuts, pulses, cereals, or meat group.

Dill is easy to grow and though we have gotten away from kitchen gardens one can easily grow a pot of it on their patio as long as it is in a sunny location and just remember to water it once in awhile.



At Home Farm we use it to enhance the flavor and taste of vegetables, chicken, fish and meat dishes and we love throwing some into our potato salad in the summer. When we make cucumbers and sliced onions with sour cream we always add some dill



Dill is great to add to sauces and freshly chopped and sautéed dill is a great addition to green salads. Of course everyone knows that Dill seeds are used in pickling.



At Home Farm Herbery when we harvest our Dill seeds we make sure the seeds that are to be used as spice and condiment release pleasant, sweet and slightly peppery flavor when rubbed between index and thumb fingers. That test is a sure sign of good Dill seeds.

When you are using fresh Dill make sure it is washed thoroughly in the water in order to remove sand and dirt and to rid off any residual pesticides. Of course at Home Farm Herbery we do not use any pesticides. However, we still do wash it. We add fresh Dill just before preparing recipes in order to keep the fragrance and aromatic flavor intact.



Yet there is a lot to be said for good, dried Dill weed and we keep a lot of it on hand throughout the winter for our own use and our Home Farm Herbery customers think it is pretty good also.

When you buy fresh Dill make sure you get Dill with vibrant green color sprigs, and firm stems. Avoid Dill with any kind of spoilage/bruises or yellowing. We whole heartily urge you to buy dill that has been grown using organic techniques since this will give you more assurance pesticide free, aromatic, as well as nutritious sprigs.

Once you get your fresh Dill weed home, store in the refrigerator keeping it in a zip pouch or wrapped in a slightly damp paper towel and use it as early as possible since it loses flavor and nutrients quickly if kept for longer periods.

If you like Dill flavored chips then take the time to make your own without all those chemicals that may well cause you health problems down the road. Try making your own Dill flavored chips with thinly slice potatoes, radishes, sweet potatoes and other kinds of veggies.

While there you can search for our organic culinary Dill seed and even get our heirloom Dill seeds to plant your own patch of healthy Dill.

One of our readers sent us a fine letter

This is a response from one of our readers, “I appreciate your attempts at educating the public concerning the source of their food. We all want to eat every day.  Sustainable agriculture, the term is tossed around nowadays. Naturally it is a concept dear to my heart. With all my hard work and effort, I can not say that I have reached the stage of being self sustainable.

 

For some reason I have always had an interest in food production, paid attention and put two and two together. for instance, Long time ago, while still living in Germany, I noticed that since modern agriculture has been in full swing, and reliance on chemical fertilizers is heavy, that though the fields look lush and green, sometimes, on a corner and sometimes a whole strip, where the farmer missed a spot in fertilizer application, the corn is yellow and knee high. If there was no artificial fertilizer applied, the whole field would look that way and there would not be a crop.

 

When I was young, I lived through the transition of age old practices to modern agriculture. The land where I grew up has been continually farmed for a couple thousand years. During that time, it basically had maintained a reliable state of fertility. The farmers knew that you can not just take, you have to give back and you have to give back as much as you take in order to keep equilibrium. The farmer also practiced a tried and true system of crop rotation. Something that I observed, since I still saw fields tended the old way (I come from a very backwards region) were the relative lack of weeds and harmful insects. On my grandparents farm, where we raised oats, wheat and rye, also potatoes, mangels and turnips, the ground was never, ever treated with herbicides, there was no such thing yet, and yet, our fields were not infested. The hayfields, which we would have called meadows, had not been touched in probably hundreds of years. A variety of grasses, herbs and wildflowers grew and made very fragrant hay that kept animals healthy. Also, the hay was cut before the plants went to seed and so weeds were not spread onto fields by surviving seeds in the manure. I had to learn the hard way that you can not use old, spoiled hay as mulch as it is full of weed seeds nowadays.

Sustainable agriculture is like the famous "circle of life". The old dies and gives substance to the new. On my own place, I have worked very hard for several years to improve the soil. Basically I have employed a system that would best be referred to as "robbing Peter to pay Paul" as I am dependent on soil building mulch, manure, etc., that has been grown somewhere else. I try to be as natural as possible, but the hay my little cows eat, was grown on somebody else's unnatural field. Nevertheless, Paul has gotten richer. I am trying to apply all means to improve and help the natural effort of the soil to repair it.

 

Basically by growing green manure cover crops and interseeding things like ladino clover which takes nitrogen from the air and transfers it to the soil.  In my attempt to learn the local flora, I noticed that in some woodland where I was digging up some wildflowers, the soil looked rich and friable, much different than just a few yards away in the adjoining pasture. It is to be safely assumed, that a hundred some years ago, this was the general condition of most of the bottom lands.  It is a sad situation. Wendell Berry, whom I would consider a chronicler of good farming practices, had a character in one of his books says, “When the white man came to this country, he fell in like a pig in a corncrib wasting the abundance. We all have read the numbers, the unfathomable tons of good soil that has been washed away, irreplaceable. I consider it to be good economy to sell produce locally. Of course that is not sustainable agriculture at the soil level. Like a neighbor told me when I first moved here, you can not grow anything without 10-10-10. The question arises. 10-10-10 has not been around very long. What are we going to do if there is none?” My answer, “Try to be as organic as you can be and be a small scale farmer.” QWTCBCS5MEG9
