we grew fennel

April 16, 2013

fennelfennelThis was our first time growing fennel. Ours didn’t grow too big, but they were still yummy and I used all of it in one dish, so there was that. It grew and we ate it, end of story. We love fennel! It’s also good roasted with carrots… yummy! Do you guys like fennel?

P.S. My hearts go out to those in Boston. This pain (and evil) is so real and I’m praying for healing for the hearts and bodies of all those affected. It’s so sad that things like this happen.

    I adore the fennel greens in hot water as a cup of tea! It has a licorice flavor (mild) and doesn’t really need sweetening. If you have any left…..x

    Last year, I topped a grilled pizza with caramelized fennel an onions. Yum.

    LOVE fennel! Great in salads and I make an after dinner digestive tea with the seeds, mixed with mint tea and honey. Great for bellyaches! Happy growing!

    I love fennel! My favorite way to use it is in a black bean, leek, fennel and red onion soup. SO good! Or in a pickled green bean salad (from the Smitten Kitchen website).
