I’m still fairly new at cooking with Florence Fennel, but really enjoy this licorice flavored bulb. The main way I have prepared it is in a Greek Fennel Skillet from the Simply in Season cookbook. One of our customers said it is great roasted and another tried it in a salad. Our daughter likes to munch on it raw too.
A bit of reading and I find it is quite versatile and is used in French and Italian cooking. Here are a few websites worth checking out.

I’d love to hear what you have made with your fennel. Please leave a comment and let us know. Have a great day!
