So, what is fennel pollen?
Fennel pollen is an intensely flavorful and aromatic spice. It adds a bold, yet pleasing dimension to most any dish. Fennel seeds may be a better known culinary tool, but they cannot compare to the intensity of flavor or fragrance of the pollen.
The fennel plant grows on the sunny inland and coastal fields of California. The flowers are hand collected at the peak of bloom, carefully dried, and screened for the pollen.
