Fennel seed

Fennel seed is one of the main flavors of sweet Italian sausage. Crushed in a mortar and pestle or ground it gives great flavor to pork chops with garlic and red wine, roasts (much the same) and of course pasta sauce. It is a natural sweetener for acidic tomatoes and adds great flavor.

I've never tried fennel before. It sounds like something I would like. Thanks!
