Fennel seeds – These are the dried seeds of the fennel plant that although native to the shores of the Mediterranean are now found widely all over the world. They have a distinct anise-like flavor and smell which is fully released after dry toasting them to release their oil. They’re an essential ingredient in Indian and Kashmiri cooking along with it’s use in Greek and Italian food. What would an Italian sausage be without it? Try toasting them in a skillet before grinding them up and using them to flavor a pork roast for something different.
Store Saunf in a cool, dark place away from the sunlight in an airtight glass container as most spices last longer and retain their potency for a greater period of time if stored this way. Do not keep Saunf for longer than six months.
