Toasted Fennel Spice Rub
The use of fennel spice dates back thousands of years. Hindu and Chinese people used to use it as a cure for snake bites, while during the Middle Ages, Fennel was hung above doorways to ward off evil spirits. Our Ground Fennel Seeds add a sweetness to traditional dishes from Italy and the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and Scandinavia. It blends wonderfully with tomatoes, seafood, and pork. Ingredients: Fennel Seeds.
Love the flavor
the fennel has a great bouquet and flavor
Fennel seeds are indispensable in Mediterranean cuisine. Great in Italian Sunday 'sauce' (tomato sauce) where you choose not to add meat, a great enhancer to steamed fish in parchment. I love to quickly toast the seeds in a skillet to bring out the anise flavor then crush the seeds with a mortar and pestle. When you get a waft of the smoky sweet aroma you'll want to use it everywhere.
