Who knew fennel was so good!
- Gail, Riverford customer

How to prepare

You can eat fennel raw or cooked. Raw, it’s fresh, crunchy and aniseedy – just slice into slivers and dress with zesty lemon and black pepper. Add blood orange, black olives or ribbons or raw asparagus for additional luxury.

Cooked, fennel turns gorgeously soft, sweet and mellow. Roast in wedges or slow cook in olive oil until tender.

Storage

Delivered from our farm, so wash before cooking. Best kept in the fridge, cut off leaves if not planning to eat them.
