Fennel

1.5 oz.

This tiny spice packs a punch in flavor and has plenty of health benefits too. No wonder it is used in so many cuisines, from American to Syrian, everyone loves fennel. Indians have traditionally used fennel in cooking and medicine. It is used to flavor bread, curries, and even in aromatherapy massage.

Fennel adds a fresh, sweet, mildly minty flavor to chai, and roasted fennel can add depth to the flavor of your favorite curry, soup, braise, or bread. Fennel seeds are used in cheese spreads, salad dressings, or to flavor butter. Combined with salt and pepper, this spice makes a lovely spice mix for air-frying your favorite veggies. It can add a sweet, earthy warmth to Italian and Mediterranean meals. Indians also use fennel as an after-meal breath freshener.
