Fennel is a large white bulb from which green stalks and feathery green leaves grow from. All part of fennel are edible. The bulb can be sauteed, stewed, grilled, and eaten raw. Due to their delicate nature, the leaves are most often used as garnish. It is closely related to carrots, dill, and parsley. It is highly aromatic and has a strong anise-type flavor.

Storage: Cut the stalks off of the white bulb. Store the stalks in a jar of water (keeping the leaves dry) in the fridge for up to a week. Keep the bulb in a plastic bag in the fridge for up to a week.

Preparation: Trim off any bad spots and/or the most outer layer. Rinse in water. Slice in half, then slice or dice as the recipe calls for.
