Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) Fennel is a herb known for both its great liquorice-like flavour and a long list of medicinal properties. Praised as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, it is also rich in vitamins and fiber. Similar to dill, fennel attracts many beneficial insects and pollinators. Fully grown, Fennel leaves are feathery, fern-like structures that are edible. The seeds are delicious and complex in flavour, adding depth to a variety of meat dishes.
