Steenbergs Organic Ground Fennel Powder is the powdered fruit from the sweet fennel plant.  The dried green organic fennel seeds are ground to create this fine powder that has a wheat-like aroma and a distinctly medicinal and anise flavour.  Steenbergs organic fennel powder works well with fish or vegetables or give your sausages or chicken a Mediterranean feel by using organic fennel powder.


Fennel is an annual plant, Foeniculum vulgare dulce, that is a culinary species related to wild fennel, Foeniculum vulgare.  It is a small herb that grows to 90cm (35 inches) high and has soft, celery-like stems, with numerous, frond-like, green leaves that give it a ferny appearance.  Fennel plants grow masses of bright-yellow, umbrella-shaped blossoms that flower in summer, followed by the fennel fruit (called fennel seeds in the spice industry) which develop in autumn.  The plant has a mild anise aroma.  To harvest fennel, the stems are cut, the seed heads dried in the shade before being threshed to separate out the dried fennel fruits.  The dried fennel seeds are yellow with a hint of green (the greener the seeds the higher the quality).  Fennel seeds are 5-7mm (0.25 inches long) and many of the seeds are split into two.  Along the side of the fennel seeds there are a few pale, really thin ribs that run along their length.   Like the plant itself, the seeds have a faint anise aroma; the fennel seeds taste more strongly of anise and are warm, spicy, cleansing and refreshing.  For further details on organic fennel, visit Ingredientia and Wikipedia.


The refreshing anise flavours of fennel are popular in Asian and Indian cuisine.  Fennel combines well with sweet spices like allspice and cardamom and warmer, spicier flavours like ginger, mustard and paprika.  Fennel is good in breads, pasta, sausages (especially dried and smoked) and works well in tomato dishes and tomato-based sauces.  For some inspiration on how to cook with fennel, try the Steenbergs recipe sectionor Allrecipes and the BBC websites.
