Fennel is one vegetable that I have not personally worked with before. I do love the taste of Fennel as it has a licorice, or anise flavor. I found a recipe online from EatingWell.com for a delicious appetizer or snack using the fresh Fennel. I cut most of the stalk off the Fennel and trimmed part of the bulb. I then added some extra virgin olive oil, a thin slice of fresh parmesan cheese, and some fresh ground pepper. These were very tasty and they didn’t last long after I took the photo of them!
