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.
