Is anise and fennel the same?

maya | Oct 17, 2005 06:02 PM


My market sells something that I thought looks like fennel with frothy leaves (sort of like dill) and a white bulb on the bottom. They call it anise. Is this anise or is it fennel?

I just saw a recipe on TV that calls for fennel so wanted to try it!
