These whole organic fennel seeds have an anise, licorice and grassy flavor with spicy sweet notes and come from India. Fennel is considered good for digestion and fennel tea is popular across the world. In France and Italy, fennel is known as "the fish herb", where it is added to vinaigrettes, roasted fish, meatballs, pasta sauces and sausages. In India, fennel seeds are toasted in oil, for a less sweet and spicier flavor, and then ground or whole to breads, curries, dals and egg dishes. Once ground, fennel will quickly lose its flavor so we recommend grinding in small batches and adding to the end of the cooking process for best flavor.
