Fennel!

Enjoy our fennel, as it has a very short season. Now is the time to dry what you can't use. Either lay out on your kitchen counter, or tie a piece of twine around the end and attach to anything in the kitchen (even a nail) that will allow it to hang to dry. Once dry, crumble into an air tight container for later use.

* Toss fresh or dried fennel on the barbeque to infuse its light, sweet taste to veggies, chicken or fish.
* Add fresh or dried to salads, dips and dressings
* Use in omelettes!
* Dry and use as a stomach settling tea, either alone or combined with mint, dried citrus peels, etc. Consider stevia as a tea sweetener.
