Product Info:
Fennel (Foeniculum Vulgare) is a perennial that flowers and also produces the seeds that are used as a cooking spice. The root and stalk of Fennel also have culinary applications. In medieval Europe Fennel seeds were chewed on church fasting days to suppress hunger and Fennel was used as a breath freshener. The flavor of Fennel is similar to Anise or Licorice. 

Suggested Use:
Fennel Seeds are often use in breads, cakes, cookies and some hot drinks, such as spiced tea. Fennel is also used to flavor butter, cheese spreads and salad dressings. Fennel blends well with game and some grains such as barley and rye berries.

Dried Fennel Seeds

Basic Prep:
Fennel is most often used whole and occasionally cracked or coarsely ground. To grind, use a pepper mill, electric spice grinder, or mortar & pestle. Store leftover ground fennel in an airtight glass jar.

  3. Oh, My! 5 Star Review

    I needed some fennel seeds for my homemade Italian sausage. The price here was so good that I thought the quality might be less than perfect-- WRONG. These are fragrant, sweet and beautiful on the tongue, with just the right touch of mild licorice-like flavor. It isn't fair to describe them as licorice-like though. Fennel stands on its own as a wonderful spice. Great quality from Spices For Less.
