My family just signed up for a biweekly delivery from a local farm. We got our second shipment today, and so far have been very happy! Last week our box included two fennel bulbs, which were fun to experiment with. This week we have two more fennel bulbs, and I figure I should probably learn how to actually use it!
I've found a lot of recipes for bread that include fennel seeds. Can I replace those with the part of the stalk that looks like dill or is that a completely different flavor?
I have found several recipes that look good using only the bulb, what can I do with the stalks and hairy part (for lack of a better description)? Any other fennel tips or recipes?
