Happy Easter! This week we have a tasty bag you can use to create a unique side dish for your Easter feast with some more sweet beets, butternut squash and fennel.
Fennel is a hardy, perennial herb with yellow flowers and feathery leaves. It is a highly aromatic and flavorful herb with culinary and medicinal uses and, along with the similar-tasting anise, is one of the primary ingredients of absinthe. Young tender leaves are used for garnishes, as a salad, to add flavor to salads, to flavor sauces, and also in soups and fish sauce. The bulb is a crisp vegetable that can be sautéed, stewed, braised, grilled, or eaten raw.
See this page for more info about fennel including preparation instructions.
Enjoy this week’s bag!
