Good to know
Fennel is originally from Europe but was brought by the colonialists to America and Australia, where it unfortunately now has the status of an "invasive plant", i.e. harming the environment there. Actually, it is a very effective plant, as it can be used as a vegetable as well as a herb, as well as a spice.
Especially during Lent or with fatty foods, fennel seeds are immensely helpful, as chewing fennel seeds suppresses the feeling of hunger and support digestion.

Add as whole seeds to the dish, but you may bite on them while eating, so better mortar or grind. Fits well with savoury, but well-dosed also with sweet dishes.
Full taste development
Crushing, grinding or roasting them dry before consumption, intensifies the nutty but also sweet note; but do not let it burn, otherwise it will be bitter.
Mix fennel seeds with black peppercorns and fill them into your pepper mill.
Relieves convulsions and regular pain
Especially in the case of menstrual problems, fennel works a real miracle, as it has a calming effect by improving the blood flow of the pelvis and thus alleviating the pain.
Digestive problems such as diarrhoea, heartburn and convulsions can also be treated with fennel, by making a tea out of it, for example.
Blood & Heart
Fennel is good for blood formation due to its high iron and histidine content and should be consumed more often in case of anaemia.
Mind & Head
According to initial studies, the use of fennel can contribute to the improvement of long-term memory, which supports the prevention or treatment of dementia.
