Fennel Seeds

Fennel Seeds – Yet another umbellifer, the dried seeds of Foeniculum vulgare are used to season pickles, breads, sauerkraut, and cured as well as fresh sausages. With its anise-like flavour, it is one of the components of Chinese five-spice powder and Indian garum masala. It is easily grown and can be harvested like dill seed (see above), however, dill and fennel plants should not be grown in close proximity to each other because they will cross-breed and produce hybrids. Fennel pollen imported from Italy, which has an intense flavour even when used in small quantities, has been a recent fad among foodies, and this trend may have already passed.
