Fennel has a strong but sweet flavour that adds freshness to any dish. It can be eaten raw as a mouth freshener or cooked.
Just sliver it raw and dress in lemon and black pepper. Add some orange and fresh leaves for a fresh salad. Cooked, fennel turns gorgeously soft, sweet and mellow. Roast in wedges or slow cook in olive oil until tender.
Best kept in the fridge, cut off leaves if not planning to eat them.
