I did a series on herbs for someone's kitchen. Again, straight from our garden, I love herbs, they are a haven and a heaven for butterflies and bees.
Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) is a hardy, perennial plant, I do not just grow it for its beauty but also to use as a kitchen herb, lovely on a piece of fish, a slight aniseed taste!It is a highly aromatic and flavourful herb with culinary and medicinal uses, and, along with the similar-tasting anise, is one of the primary ingredients of absinthe.View On proper Black
he entire plant is edible. Seeds are added to sausages and baked goods; the leaves are used with fish, vegetables, cheese spreads and soups. Fennel can be used in/with salads, sausage, pork, duck, fish, cabbage, cucumber, onion, herb butter, cheese spread; seeds in desserts and breads and the seeds can be used ground in lentil soups, whole in boiling water for rice and brussels sprouts, or added to breads.
I guess it is called 'Bronze' because when it comes out of the bud that's the colour of the 'feathers!
Why not take a few minutes, CLICK on the link and WATCH, sit back and relax, enjoy the beauty, you'll feel replenished? FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD
