Fennel


In our produce order today(which comes every Wednesday), we received some fennel bulbs. Now I don't know about you, but I have never cooked or even tasted fennel bulbs....do you have any suggestions for me? How do you cook them? Have you ever tasted them? I know they are very good for you, but other than that I know nothing....

Help.

My grandparents make porketta. Obviously it is made with pork (not my thing-or yours), byt fennel is the main ingredient. I know that doesn't help you, but...

Ashtin I tried to call you today but your phone wouldn't go through...it just kept beeping like it was busy. I will try again soon. (I need to give you an update on the shoes...still waiting to hear back from her. She is out of the office.)

that stuff tastes like black licorice. i have only had it in dried form. they take the seeds and dry them and sell them in spice racks. i use it in my veggie sausage and in breads with dill and thyme and stuff.

i've never used it fresh . . .

let us know what you decide to do with it! awesome!
