Beau Monde is a specific brand of seasoning salt. The predominant flavors are nutmeg, mace, clove, allspice, white pepper and celery salt.
It’s a little strange that the recipe uses dill seeds, which are sort of like caraway seeds that taste slightly of dill. Most recipes I’ve seen for this use fresh dill weed. But I can see why, if you used dill seed, it’d go well with pumpernickel. Just be sure to toast and cool the seeds separately before mixing them in for maximum flavor.
