Description  more details

Fragrant Wild Fennel grows abundantly amid the sun-drenched fields of California. With umbels of tiny yellow flowers, fennel is an extremely aromatic plant with many uses - and the source of the intriguing, rare spice, wild fennel pollen.

Fennel flowers are handpicked at the peak of their bloom and carefully dried. Then the blossoms are screened many times to concentrate the pollen.

Fennel pollen has its own distinctive and mysterious flavor - more delicate than fennel seed, subtler than saffron or curry.

Use fennel pollen and fennel pollen blends in just about anything, including desserts. Use as a dry rub on meats, poultry and seafood before roasting, sautéing or grilling. Sprinkle into rice, pasta or grain dishes - use it in sauces, and on potatoes or steamed vegetables.

Fennel pollen is that secret ingredient that adds another dimension of flavor - no matter how you use it.

Pignoli (Pine Nut Cookies) with Fennel Pollen
Pignoli (Pine nut cookies) are often thought of as Christmas cookies, but their delicate flavor and crisp texture make them a natural accompaniment to light, summery desserts like fresh fruit, ice cream & sorbet. This recipe varies from the traditional version in several ways, most notably by the use of fennel pollen, instead of ground fennel seed. While fennel pollen has the same distinctive anise-like flavor as fennel seed, it's much lighter, more delicate and less cloying.

These cookies only take 15 - 18 minutes to bake up crisp & golden brown, so they won't heat up the kitchen on warm days - and their intoxicating aroma is guaranteed to drive everyone in the house (if not the entire neighborhood) wild!
