Fennel also known as finocchio, common fennel, sweet fennel, wild fennel and sweet cumin. Store in cool, dry, dark place away from heat, light and moisture. Seeds will stay fresh for 2 years. Ground Fennel will keep for 6 months to 1 year if stored properly.

Fennel yields an herb and a spice. The stems and leaves are all edible. The spice comes from the dried seeds, the herb comes from the leaves and the stalk and root are the vegetable.

Fennel is native to the Mediterranean and is one of our oldest cultivated plan. Roman warriors took fennel to keep in good health while their ladies ate it to prevent obesity

The seed is similar to anise seed, but sweeter and milder. It pairs well with fish, but Italians also like to add it to sauces, meats & sausages. If you are familiar with the taste, it is probably from having it in commercially prepared sausages. The leaves and stems can be finely chopped and used in salads and cooked vegetables. Also add to soups and stuffing.
