This is the third week in a row for fennel in the CSA box. Fennel is a new experience for me. I*m a convert. In addition to the delicate licorice flavor, it looks a bit like a small person with hair. If it arrives in the box next week, I will do a fennel skit with it before dinner. Fennel is a versatile vegetable. I*m a fan.
I am rather fond
Of the feathery fennel
I find every week
Not the fronds so much
But the very fine timbre
Of crunch, then anise
Floods – no – flows - no -faint
Whispers licorice hiddenIn salad: surprise!
