Collecting fennel pollen

August 18, 2016



At this time of year the fennel is in full flower and the flowers are heavy with pollen spreading their scent all over the garden attracting a multitude of flying insects.

If you have not tried to eat the flowers before then do as they have an incredible sweetness




The pollen s simple to collect, just take off the heads, shake off any insects that are in residence and rub the individual flowers between your fingers into a container. The pollen drops out easily



Once you have it collected it seems to keep fine in a sterilised jar. We plan to use it in dressings with fish and maybe into a fennel pollen and lemon ice cream
