What is Fennel Seed?

As a spice used in almost every culture around the world, fennel’s unique, slightly sweet flavor profile accented with warm notes of licorice brings out hidden flavors in a wide variety of dishes. Rumi’s signature fennel is grown wild in the rugged outskirts of the Herat region in Afghanistan, where local foragers gather fennel during the summer harvest.

How to use it

Fennel pairs well with other herbs and spices such as basil, thyme, and oregano, and offers any cook amazing versatility. Its bold flavor pairs well with flaky white fish and slow-roasted pork and adds delicious earthy notes to everything from vinaigrettes, curries, cocktails, and baked goods.

Amazingly fragrant and complex fennel

From the moment you open the bottle and smell the fennel seeds you can tell the quality is on a completely different level. Amazing flavor and very potent, every dish I've tried these fennel seeds in has turned out amazing.

Fennel, Cumin and Saffron

The gift recipient was duly impressed and particularly loved the fennel. She'll try the saffron tonight in a risotto. Your saffron is the best!

The only fennel I buy

Smells like heaven, and tastes as good too. This stands out above every store-bought fennel seed I've ever used.
