Our fennel herb plants are sooo out of control; I need people to come over and pick some! Please! Free fennel fronds!
I use the stalks as a replacement in any recipe that asks for celery.
After the flowers are done blooming, they turn into fennel seeds. Fennel seeds are awesome in Indian dishes and pickling.
The fronds are good in the Toscana Soup. Fennel can go on top of any Italian dish and in it as an ingredient: spaghetti, pizza, it also can go in Indian dishes too…also if you are pickling or doing any dressing that is vinegary, it works wonders.
