Food Tip of the Week: Fennel
Fennel… is it an herb or a spice? There are two main types of this aromatic plant, both with pale green, celery-like stems and bright green feathery foliage.
Look for fennel from early fall through spring, with its peak season during the holidays. With the holiday season picking up steam, many of us will be in the kitchen preparing meals for out of town guests. Fennel makes a delightful base for crudités and salads, particularly with citrus and other fruits. It is also an excellent last minute flavor enhancer for sauces, stews, and soups.
