The earthy, smoky flavor and meaty texture of the portobellos combined with the zing of our Fennel Pollen make this an excellent meat substitute or side dish.
A Zing of Flavor
Imagine isolating a fennel seed, making it significantly sweeter and a hundred times more intense to the palate. Taste subtle hints of hay, honey and citrus balanced with zings of freshly ground anise in our Italian fennel pollen seasoning. To the nose, the aroma is musty with deep floral notes. The most potent form of fennel, the pollen gives a sense of terroir to a dish and instantly elevates flavor.
Add a Dash of Extraordinary
Long used in Italian cooking, fennel pollen is golden yellow with rustic green specks of magical flavor. Hand harvested from the Sicani mountains at La Furtuna Estate, organic fennel has hollow stems that bloom small yellow flowers. Pollen is collected from the flowers and tediously dried with a deft touch. Tiny and amber, a gingerly pinch of this fennel pollen spice is all you need to transform an average dish into supreme cuisine.
Wonderful, intense flavor!
Robin, thanks again for the positive review! The Fennel Pollen is truly one-of-a-kind. We like experimenting with different foods, asking "I wonder how this would taste with a sprinkle of Fennel Pollen?" It makes everything more delicious!
So good - used this to crust a rack of lamb and was blown away. A new permanent addition to my kitchen!
We appreciate your sincere review Ethan! The Fennel Pollen from our farm is a pretty unique seasoning. For those that like it, the more dishes you try it with the more you love it!
The Wild Foraged Fennel Pollen is so good, and versatile. It smells great. I've used on salmon, chicken, roasted veggies, salad. I buy raw nuts and roast them in the oven and a little of the pollen sprinkled on at the end is so good.
Thank you Lisa! We love to hear about new uses for the Fennel Pollen that we haven't tried yet. It's great way to add a special zing to whatever your cooking.
I ordered the fennel pollen to use on fish and it is wonderful. I’ll be trying it on other foods as well.
