Fennel flowers are wide bunches of tiny yellow blossoms atop long green stalks.
Fennel flowers and stalks have a strong, delicious sweet fennel flavor evoking licorice. The flowers are very tender. The stalks are very flavorful, but won’t break down completely if chewed, so it may be better to remove them for some applications.
Removed from the heavier stalks, the petal bunches float well in liquids.
