Tuscan Fennel Pollen
Fennel Pollen is one of the rare spices of the world worth its weight in gold. Held next to Saffron and Vanilla as the world most expensive spices, this is due to the labourer’s process in order to harvest Fennel Pollen. In Italy every spring Fennel Pollen is harvested and quickly sold, so getting our hands on this delicious spice can be difficult! Italians love Fennel pollen for its flora, liquorice, and subtle cooling anise flavours it adds. It adds perfect to pasta sauce, soups, stocks, marinades but most importantly the slow cooked pork dish known as Porchetta! I highly recommend Fennel Pollen for this reason and so much more!
