Known as Aniseed due to its cleansing crunch filled with aniseed undertones and a hint of liquorice. The fabulous 'fennel' will have your taste buds shooting for the stars with its freshness. A truly versatile vegetable, shave or shred your way through the bobbing white bulb. Couple it with complementary flavours like apples, pears, radicchio, oranges and onions.
Health Benefits - filled with significant amounts of fiber, it also contains potassium, folate, vitamin C, and Vitamin B6.
Flavour - Very similar to liquorice, the bulb is more mellow in flavour.
Availability - Available May - September.
Storage - Store fennel in a closed container so it does not absorb other flavours and place it in the refrigerator.
