The Spice Lab USDA Organic Spices - French Jar
- CULINARY: The bulb, foliage, and seeds of the fennel plant are used in many of the culinary traditions of the world.
- POTENT: The small flowers of wild fennel (known as fennel "pollen") are the most potent form of fennel, but also the most expensive.
- AROMA: Dried fennel seed is an aromatic, anise-flavored spice, brown or green in color when fresh, slowly turning a dull grey as the seed ages.
- USE: The bulb is a crisp vegetable that can be sauted, stewed, braised, grilled, or eaten raw.
- FOR USE: Fennel seeds are sometimes confused with those of anise, which are similar in taste and appearance, though smaller. The seeds are used in cookery and sweet desserts.
FENNEL SEEDS come from the plant Foeniculum vulgare, native to the Mediterranean. These seeds are the dried fruit of the plant. Because of their physical resemblance to cumin seeds, fennel seeds are sometimes called sweet cumin or large cumin.
The Spice Labs Organic Whole Fennel Seeds come from Africa, Asia and the USA, and are packed in the USA.
