A Fennel Snack!

My mum-in-law, Lena, put me onto this snack.

I trimmed & washed the Fennel Bulb, trimming the root off the base so the stems separate easily. Cutting the stems into strips, I squeezed a lemon, added some Olive Oil, Salt & Pepper, mixed & poured the mixture over the Fennel Strips. 

 This is Delicious & I store this in the fridge until I need a snack.

Fennel has a sweet & very mild aniseed flavour. The Aniseed flavour comes from anethole, an aromatic compound also found in anise & star anise.

Steve makes an Italian Sausage with Pork, Salt, Pepper & Fennel seeds.

Bec reckons it would be nicer with Celery! Maybe it's an acquired taste, but I Love it!
