Someone gave us a fennel bulb this year, and we grew it with much success. Unfortunately, I've never been a big fennel fan, so I have no idea what to do with it. I'm willing to consider pretty much anything...Any ideas? (FYI: I did have mussels in a white wine broth with shaved fennel at a restaurant, and thought it was divine, so I CAN like it).
Also, once pulled, how long will the fennel keep, and must I use it all at once?
