Friday Question: FENNEL

Who likes fennel seeds? Because I got a hold of an organic bunch of them and wow, I just love these things. I eat them after meals to aid digestion. I'm also excited blitz them into a powder, for a lovely licorice-style cookie/biscuit/cracker thing-a-ma-jig (as I have decided yet for sure).

Friday Question: Do you like fennel seed, bulb and/or feathery leaves? And if so, how do you like to eat yours? If I get my little oven mitts on a nice full fennel this weekend, I'm gonna slice it for a nice crisp raw treat.

PS: This makes post 1414 :-) I love the number 4.

  2. Never had the seeds, but I sure would like to grow them. I love licorice. Husband doesn't like fennel. I love it. Hope you are doing well and Happy Thanksgiving ahead of time.:)

  3. I love cookies or baking with a licorice or anise flavour. I'm not sure if I've ever had that flavour from fennel seeds or not though.

    1. They're like eating little JellyBellies but only better. If I could, I'd teleport you a few.

  10. I with you I like fennel. I love it in Italian sausage. I grew fennel in my garden a couple of years ago and it makes a nice salad. I have a fennel and apple salad recipe on my blog.

    1. I can see the fennel and apple being a refreshing pair. I don't eat pig sausage so I was going to make an organic chicken sausage with the fennel. Very cool that you grew it a couple of years ago. Must have been heavenly to have it so fresh.

    Yes, I like to eat a few fennel seeds on the way past the plant in my garden.
    Love the Christmas lights, never too early for Christmas lights.
