Essential Pantry Whole Fennel Seeds for Sale

2 OZ

Fennel seed comes from the tall, leggy fennel plant that grows wild throughout Eastern and Western Europe, India, North Africa, and Japan.

Though it has a pleasant, sweet, and cool flavor that is often compared to anise, no other spice comes close to matching its uniquely camphoric, mellow profile.

Fennel seed is exceptionally good with fish, especially very oily varieties, reeling in heavy flavors with its clean taste. Pork and lamb are also traditionally seasoned with fennel, and it adds significant flavor to simple salad dressings and egg sauces.

It lends a crisp flavor to curry powders and other traditional spice mixes and is a necessary ingredient in European breads, sausages, and pickles.

Use sparingly in foods that could use a little "lift."
