Dillicious (dill + delicious)

"Dill-icious” or “dillicious” (dill + delicious) is pun, often used to describe dill pickles. The term appears to have started in New York City delicatessens.

“The Greenwich Village delicatessen with a sensayuma. His sign reads: ‘Our pickles are dill-icious’” was printed in a Walter Winchell newspaper column on February 11, 1944. “The midtown delicatessen which features ‘Dill-icious Pickles’” was printed in a Walter Winchell newspaper column in December 11, 1945. “In Broadway (N.Y.) delicatessen: ‘Dill-icious Pickles’” was printed in the Monrovia (CA) News-Post on September 29, 1947.


Wikipedia: Dill
Dill (Anethum graveolens) is an annual herb in the celery family Apiaceae. It is the only species in the genus Anethum. Dill is grown widely in Eurasia, where its leaves and seeds are used as an herb or spice for flavouring food.

Personally, I thought the recipe sounded delicious--or should I say
DILLicious--and have printed it out to give it a try.
