New to fennel, well you’re in for a treat!! You’ll notice it has a slight black jelly bean flavor to it adding an interesting kick to your salads. You can treat it like celery and throw chunks in or you can even braise, sautÃ©e, roaste, or even grill the bulb to soften it up! For more info on fennel click here!
