Fennel

by Stephanie Suesan Smith, Ph.D. on May 31, 2011

Fennel is one of the less common herbs.  It has a licorice taste and cross pollinates with dill to produce a truly nasty tasting plant. The two plants must be separated as widely as possible to prevent this.   This fennel is growing in the herb bed at the Heritage Garden of Hunt County.

Ah, but the question is what do you do with it?

You eat the bulb like celery, and use the leaves like dill. but with licorice.

Oh, ok. So can you use it to make pickles or in potato salad? Do you have any favorite foods you like to flavor with it?

Actually, I am not fond of fennel. Too licorice. I prefer dill.
