Foraged by hand in Northern California, this fennel is bursting with phenomenal flavor. The hard scrabble life of wild fennel in this region - intense sunshine, little water, rocky soil - means the aromatic oils are concentrated in seeds that are smaller and more compact than cultivated varieties. Use in recipes calling for fennel seed and where you want a punchier fennel flavor!

Contains: Wild black fennel seeds.
