Fennel Pollen has a truly incredible flavor - imagine isolating a fennel seed, making it sweeter and then making it a hundred times more intense. If angels sprinkled a spice from their wings, this would be it!
Many angels are needed to create even a small amount of this pollen, making this spice nearly as expensive as saffron. The lovely flavor is like a much sweeter and more powerful fennel seed. Fennel pollen is popular in Italy, where cooks add to their olive oil for bread and make a fennel pesto.
Suggestion: Sprinkle a pinch onto poached salmon or chicken for an elusively sweet garnish.
