WILD FENNEL

P1010583.jpg

In our garden, all around our house on the hill we have the good fortune to be surrounded by wild fennel. All summer we use it fresh. As fall comes, we pick the dried and still fresh seed pods to put away for winter use. We use the seeds in our many types of hearty winter soups, in potato concoctions, with rabbit, guinea hen and brasati. Wild fennel, fresh or dried, is one of my favorite herbs.

What a beautiful arrangement, Mary!

After reading your post I went down the street and picked a bunch of fennel! Back in the summer I picked some and got a little pile of pollen to use some time soon on a pork roast.
