Fennel seeds have an aniseed flavour and a warm, sweet aroma. They are often used in Chinese and Indian spice mixes and also in Middle East and Italian cooking. Use to flavour fish, meat and vegetable dishes, as well as breads and chutneys. Great in sausages and tomato based dishes. As with other spices, toasting the seeds in a dry frying pan for a minute or two releases the seed’s fragment oils and flavours. Once you can smell the seeds, you’ll know they are ready. You can also chew the whole seeds as a breath-freshener, and they're believed to aid digestion.
