Fennel blossoms are clusters of bright yellow, petite flowers that form at the very top of thin, short, green stems. The blossoms can spread between 5 to 15 centimeters in diameter and contain between 20 to 50 tiny flowers. Each Fennel blossom contains light yellow to golden brown pollen. Fennel blossoms have an aromatic anise scent. The flavor of Fennel blossoms is herbaceous with a hint of sweetness and mild licorice taste.
Fennel blossoms are available year-round with a peak season in the summer.
Fennel blossoms, of the species Foeniculum, are a perennial herb and member of the Apiaceae family. Fennel blossoms are prized for their pollen which has become an immensely popular spice in the culinary world.
Fennel blossoms are ideal for use in a variety of preparations. Combine with other whole herbs when making pickles. Add to sauces, dressings and soups or sprinkle atop salads to add flavor and color. Use fennel blossoms in oil and vinegar infusions. The anise flavor will enhance breads, cakes, cookies, rissoto and fresh pasta. Add flowers to homemade sausage or chop and serve atop grilled fish.
Native to southern Europe, the name fennel is thought to have derived from the Greek name, marathon or mathonas which is the site where a great battle between the Greeks and Persians was fought in 490 and a location where significant amounts of wild fennel was said to have grown. Fennel blossoms are cultivated around the world and are particularly popular in Mediterranean cuisine as well as in India and the United States.
