A member of the carrot family¸ Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) is a native of Italy and one of the most ancient of cultivated plants. The Roman colonization of Italy spread the early use of the plant¸ especially for culinary purposes. Used as a flavoring for salt-water fish¸ it was also used to whiten¸ tenderize and deodorize the meat. The odor of Fennel seed is fragrant and the taste is warm¸ sweet and agreeable. Similar in taste to Dill and Anise¸ Fennel may be substituted for them in recipes for interesting effects. The shoots and stalks can also be eaten raw like celery. In addition to Fennel’s culinary uses¸ it adds a sharp scent to potpourris¸ sachets¸ perfumes and soaps. Fennel is often used with other herbs for its soothing effect.
