KATZ CALIFORNIA FENNEL POLLEN - 11 grams/0.39 oz $12
Around here, we believe that highly fragrant and fresh spices can greatly influence the quality and taste of the finished dish. Fennel Pollen is one of those ingredients that can actually make a real difference!
Fennel pollen granules are hand harvested from the buds of flowering wild fennel in California, such as ours, and in Italy where it has long been a culinary tradition. It quickly has been catching on in the United States as more and more chefs are finding new ways to highlight the strong flavor profile. It has the licorice flavor of fennel seed and anise with some subtle citrus and honey notes. It acts as both a flavoring agent and booster enhancing the deep savoriness and intensity we are striving for in our cooking. As the food writer, Peggy Knickerbocker, exhorted in a Saveur Magazine article years ago:
If angels sprinkled a spice from their wings, this would be it.
Our KATZ Fennel Pollen has many uses from a rub for salmon or chicken, or try it on our KATZ Aromatic Pork Loin Recipe. It is a great addition to pasta and risotto dishes and can be either added to your sauce or sprinkled on top for a heightened fennel flavor. It also stands up to many grains including farro and quinoa, which is actually a seed and considered a super food; check our our KATZ Quinoa Salad Recipe...really healthy and really good! It marries very well with KATZ Extra Virgin Olive Oil drizzled on a toasted crouton and sprinkled with fleur de sel with a pinch of fennel pollen…darn near magical! Or, try our KATZ Smoked Trout with Apple and Fennel Pollen recipe next time you need an appetizer for guests.
And don’t forget the sweets…from cookies, to muffins, to coffee cakes, and scones…all are enhanced by this magical spice. Please check out our tasty dessert recipe KATZ Fennel Pollen Apple Cake...This spice is great on just about everything!
