4 Ways To Use All Those Fennell Seeds You Don’t Know What To Do With!

Posted on Updated on

Fennell seed

I have a ton of Fennel in my yard.  Front and back.  I started with one plant about 6 years ago.  Now I have 40!.  It self seeds and spreads really easily.  So I am always looking for ways to use fennel.  In the spring, the bulbs are wonderful in salads.  I have made a bruschetta of caramelized onion and fennel.  My husband uses it on pizza sometime.  In early summer, the fennel has lacy yellow flowers.  Honey bees love it for the nectar.  I will pick it and put in a vase.  Looks really lovely.  Right now the flowers are gone.  The seeds are coming.  I do use them for my vegan sausage.  As I said though, I have a lot of plants, so that means a lot of seeds.  So I went searching for new recipes.  Here are what I found.
