Got Fennel?

Standard

Fennel was a mystery to me until I married the Farmer. Sure, I had read about it in cookbooks, but I don’t think I had ever seen a fennel bulb in person until a few years after the Farmer and I had been married. Fennel can be a little intimidating, but once you learn a few easy tips on how to use it you will fall in love (or at least deep like) with it. I love when fennel is in season and I am making a big batch of my virus-killing chicken noodle soup. Here are two tutorials that go over some fennel basics and tips.
