Fennel Pollen, Organic
Fennel Pollen has a flavor that is incredible--like taking the fennel seed, sweetening it and then intensifying it a hundred times.
In an article for Saveur magazine, Peggy Knickerbocker wrote, "If angels sprinkled a spice from their wings, this would be it." Naturally, a statement this bold piqued our interest. It takes many fennel flowers to produce even a small amount of the pollen, making this spice almost as costly as saffron. (If you think about it angels would certainly not come cheaply!) The flavor is incredible, like taking the fennel seed, sweetening it and then intensifying it a hundred times. This fennel pollen is very popular in Italy where they make fennel pesto or mix it with olive oil for bread. Our fennel pollen is harvested in California where Italian immigrants planted it. It's some of the cleanest, nicest fennel pollen you will ever come across. You will find many uses for this spice, as it adds bright bursts of flavor to anything, from vegetables to roast chicken. Great sprinkled on salads, a natural over pork roast. Especially good for fish such as salmon -- and you only need a pinch.
