Fennel, Organic (1 head)

(£2.25 each)
Organic Vegan plasticfree

Fennel. You’ll know about its otherworldly appearance and that alluring liquorice aroma. What you might not know is how incredibly versatile and dynamic it is. Raw (in a salad) it has a crisp texture and tastes strongly of aniseed, but cooked (in a stew) it makes a softer, more mellow impression.

Country of Origin - Holland
Class - Minimum Class 2

Once the British season is over our fennel comes from Jan van Lierop on De Braok farm near Eindhoven. He's been growing fennel and other vegetables organically for 20 years.

Ingredients & allergens

Abel & Cole handles celery, celeriac and nuts on site. Due to our packing process and re-use of boxes there is a risk of cross-contamination from these, and all other allergens.

Storage & prep

The delicate aniseed flavour means that it is delicious both raw and cooked. For a main course you should allow one head per person. Don't discard the fronds as they can be used as a garnish for your chosen recipe. To release the flavour of the seeds, warm them for 1-2 minutes in a dry frying pan over a low heat, then crush. Wrap them up tight, and keep in your fridge.
