Saveur magazine's Peggy Knickerbocker summed Fennel Pollen up this way: "If angels sprinkled a spice from their wings, this would be it."
Fennel Pollen's flavor is a sweetened, intensified version of fennel. Its nuance of flavors is prized by chefs and connoisseurs. Harvested in California, it takes many fennel blossoms to make a gram of fennel pollen. This process makes Fennel Pollen as costly as saffron. Luckily, you don't need much to make a lasting impression.
