  • More Info

    One of Fennel’s greatest attributes is its ability to make the unpleasant taste of many herbs more tolerable, particularly to children’s taste buds. Its aromatic quality also gives it some activity as a “catalyst” for other herbs. Fennel seeds are commonly used in Mediterranean cuisine such as salads, pastas and vegetable dishes. They are a common ingredient in Italian sausages and in northern European rye breads. They have a sweet, yet very aromatic flavour and scent. Fennel seeds are fantastic to help reduce flatulence, aid digestion, increase appetite, reduce cramping of the digestive tract and can assist in reducing the severity of a cough and aid breastfeeding mothers in producing milk flow.

  • How to use

    Fennel Seeds are great in salads, pastas and vegetable dishes. They can also be infused in hot water to make a good digestive balancing tea

  • Growing and Processing

    Once the fennel herb has reached full size, seeds appear and are harvested when the seeds appear brown. The seeds are dried in the sun for 1-2 days and then in the sun for 8-10 days. After drying, fennel seeds are cleaned and graded before packaging.
