Family Tip:

  1. These seeds are lovely combined in a rice salad with other fresh herbs such as parsley and coriander.  They add a lovely variation in flavour and texture.
  2. We like to use fennel seed as a herbal tea.  It is associated with a whole host of health benefits and can be combined with other garden herbs such as rosemary and lavender.
