A lot of people don’t know how crisp and refreshing fennel is. I go to my local Whole Foods and I see person after person passing it right over, not even stopping to see its name. Fennel can be intimidating- it looks weird and isn’t easily recognizable- but it is actually really easy to handle!
Raw fennel tastes slightly of licorice, and when fresh, is delightfully crisp. Roasted fennel has a more complex flavor, but I personally prefer it raw as part of a salad. Watch this video to learn how to cut fennel, and then visit my latest Babycenter post to learn how to make a fennel salad.
As winter goes on and the abundance of produce diminishes… don’t despair! Fennel will be there!
The end of the video has a funny guest appearance. My cousin and I were testing out my new camera and the result was too awkwardly funny to not include. We were being dorks. Enjoy!
