About the product

This spice is indigenous to the Mediterranean and is popular in Italian and French kitchens. The ground spice is an essential constituent of Chinese 5 Spice, and whole the seeds make up one-fifth of the quintessential Bengali spice mixture, ‘Panch Phoran’. Toasting removes some of the spice’s sweetness and tends to be treated this way when incorporated in breads and cheeses. Imparting a slightly mottled anise flavour to all it touches, fennel is a great digestive, used in many digestifs from Ferna Branca to Absinthe and the Indian (non-alcoholic) classic, ‘Mishri and Soonf’. A mixture of gem like, crystal-clear sugar and fennel fruits this blend not only acts as a palate cleanser, but also a great aid to digestion.
