I often use the fennel leaf on baked salmon and in salads but have never tasted the seeds. Monty demonstrated trying these . They have a strong aniseed flavour and are supposed to aid digestion. I have now sampled them. They are quite tasty and I shall now probably pick the old one as I pass by.
I equally only learned the other day from a comment on my blog post by my sister that nasturtiums seeds are known as the poor man's caper.
I haven't been tempted to try these although I have occasionally used the leaf and flower in salad.
I can see that we are not the only ones to find these tasty!
