What to do with all this: Fennel
3 oranges and 20 fennel bulbs in my CSA Box! Oh yeah!
Maybe you’re not as enthusiastic when this happens to you? Embrace fresh fennel because it has so many positives. It’s a beautiful plant with some real curves. It has those lacy, delicate fronds. It tastes like completely matured celery, able to buy its own liquor. [Note: Finocchio is the Italian name for Fennel and it's earned it's own Urban Dictionary entry]
You’ve probably eaten it in a salad or 100. Maybe with some citrus? There’s no denying that’s good – but it’s not going to help you plow through 20 bulbs. Here are 8 favorite ideas for a marvelous fennel frenzy.
Dont forget the mandoline!
