Fennel, Whole Seeds

Fennel Seeds

Wild fennel is one of two scents we think of as distinctly Sicilian (the other being orange blossoms). Fragrant and mysterious, fennel has a taste similar to anise. Properly used, it adds a royal note to biscotti, candies and herbal tea and is a key ingredient in Kashmiri and Gujarati cuisine, as well as many of our favorite sausages. Also available in Ground Fennel Seeds, or Fennel Pollen.

Details

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.

Sweet backbone to Mediterranean cooking

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.
