Fennel is May's SPICE OF THE MONTH

Fennel is a highly aromatic and flavorful herb with culinary and medicinal uses and, along with the similar-tasting anise, is one of the primary ingredients of absinthe. One of our favorite ways to enjoy fennel is in an Italian style sausage – a delicious addition to a pasta sauce or in a lasagna.

Fennel Butter

This simple compound butter is a delicious addition to grilled chicken, oven roasted salmon or steamed carrots.
