There is also one cultivar, Florence fennel, that is grown for it’s bulb. It makes for an amazing fennel and lemon salad. It is sometimes sold as an ‘anise bulb’ but anise is a different species that has a similar flavour to fennel.
You can use the seeds whole or ground as a cooking ingredient, garnish and even as a mouth freshener. They are a key ingredient in many masalas and spice pastes. It is a must have spice in many pork dishes and products.
I have some more recipes using fennel for you in the links below. 🙂
