Crisp and flavorful, fennel is one of the most commonly consumed vegetables in the Mediterranean.





Fennel grows in the autumn and winter. When you buy fennel, look for full, compact bulbs that are completely white and green with no brown spots.

- To clean the fennel, remove the stems and slice along the sides.
- With your hands, remove the outer leaves and sprigs, but do not throw them away. They can be used to prepare a tea or infusion.
- Cut the bottom, then cut the fennel in accordance with the purpose for which you need.
- Cut it into thick slices for baking or gratin, or into cubes if you want to prepare a mix of vegetables to be pan-roasted.
