These fennel bulbs are smaller than what you'd get at regular grocery stores, but they have a delicious anise flavor and long stems and fronds, which I chop and add to soups. I often put chopped fennel in pasta sauce; one of my favorites is sauteed fennel with caramelized onions and oily tuna or sardines.

In summer, we eat this amazing fennel raw in salads or panzanella. It is very sweet and I prefer these younger and more tender bulbs than those from the store. In cooler months, we roast sliced fennel with olive oil and fresh grated Parmigiano cheese. Even our kids, who aren't licorice fans love this fennel!
