Traditionally used to aid in digestion and freshen the breath, fennel seeds have a powerful licorice flavor with sweet and woody accents. A regular addition to many spice blends, they are a sought-after dry rub for meat and fish, and can add subtle fragrant sweetness to sauces, roasted vegetables and homemade breads.
Fennel Seeds Native to the Mediterranean
Native to the Mediterranean, wild fennel seeds grow plentifully at La Furtuna Estate. Easily recognized by their tall, feather-like foliage, fennel grows an umbrella-shaped cluster of bright yellow flowers, which later produce seeds. Warm and aromatic, wild fennel seeds pair perfectly with both sweet and savory recipes around the world, particularly Italian, Indian and Middle Eastern fare.
This foraged fennel has the most gorgeous floral fennel scent … it is as if we just came in from the countryside with huge bouquet of fennel heaven!! Excellent quality!
