Store wild fennel seeds in an air-tight container (like their jar) in a cool, dry place (typically a cupboard or pantry).
Shelf Life: Two years or longer.
Use wild fennel seeds as you would conventional fennel, taking into account their stronger flavor and aroma.
Intensify fennel seeds’ flavor & aroma by gently toasting them in a dry pan just before using them.
Grind for use in spice blends, dry rubs, seasonings, etc. Add whole to marinades, pickling liquids, sausages and brines, or infuse into sauces.
Pair fennel with other ingredients like pork, wild boar, seafood, tomatoes, garlic, tarragon and star anise.
