I remember as a kid at grandma and grandpa Sigonas’ for the holidays, there would a plate with raw fennel to munch on after your meal–a very Sicilian tradition.
When choosing fresh fennel select:
- White bulbs that are heavy and firm with bright green feathery fronds.
- Bulbs that are heavy for its size.
- Avoid bulbs with moist spots, bruises or that appear shriveled
