Fennel pollen is sifted out the fennel flowers when they are at full bloom, creating a seasoning that has a similar flavor and aroma of fennel, but is not quite the same; curry, anise and honey-lemon overtones.
This herb is golden green and you only need a little bit, which is a good thing because each fennel flower produces only a little bit of pollen; harvesting this product is labor-intensive.
Fennel pollen is often paired with pork, but also use it with seafood, beef, poultry, vegetables, salads, with rice and pasta. It works wonderfully in both sweet and savory dishes. Perfect grilling rub.
The small tin contains 1 ounce.
