Description:Fennel pollen is a remarkably versatile spice, harvested from the buds of flowering fennel plants in California. With joyful notes of licorice, citrus, and honey, this “gold dust” brings excitingly intense flavor to dishes both sweet and savory.
Try this as an aromatic rub for pork, poultry, or salmon, mixed with kosher salt. With a light dusting of fennel pollen (about a teaspoon or so) and a splash of olive oil, grilled veggies will sing with flavor. A touch of fennel pollen in sweet recipes featuring oatmeal, cinnamon, citrus, or chocolate, will add nuanced flavor to your baked goods.
