Peggy Knickerbocker, writing for Saveur Magazine, describes it thus: "If angels sprinkled a spice from their wings, this would be it." Many, many fennel flowers are need to create even a small amount of this pollen, making this spice nearly as expensive as saffron. The lovely flavor is like a much sweeter and more powerful fennel seed. Fennel pollen is popular in Italy, where cooks add to their olive oil for bread and make a fennel pesto. Our product is grown in California, where immigrants from Italy planted it. This fennel pollen is among the cleanest, most flavorful fennel pollen you’ll find anywhere. This is a versatile spice with many uses. It adds a bright burst of flavor to everything it touches, from roast chicken to vegetables. It’s wonderful sprinkled on salads and pork roasts and is especially tasty on fish like salmon. A little fennel pollen goes a long way - start off with a tiny pinch added to the top of your dish.
