Licorice-like flavor. Toast and add to meatballs, salads, saute with onions, peppers and sausage for pizza, or add to curry dishes. Simmer with tomatoes and onions for a delicious fresh tomato sauce. This also makes a great addition in stuffing, herb butters and cheese spreads. Mix up a teaspoon of fennel and caraway seed and chew on it to settle the stomach after a rich meal. It works!
