Candied Fennel is a delightful and versatile treat that combines the natural licorice-like flavor of fennel with a sweet, sugary coating. This confection makes for an exquisite addition to your dessert repertoire and can also be enjoyed as a standalone snack.

Whether you're a fan of the distinct anise flavor or simply looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, candied fennel is a unique and flavorful choice. Candied fennel starts with fresh fennel bulbs, which are sliced into thin pieces and then coated with a syrup made from sugar, water, and sometimes additional flavorings like citrus zest or spices.

The result is a beautiful fusion of crunchy and slightly chewy textures, with the gentle warmth of fennel harmonizing with the sweet, sugary glaze. It's a taste experience that's both refreshing and indulgent.

Staff Tips & Tricks

Select Fresh Fennel: Begin with fresh Fennel bulbs. Look for bulbs that are firm, with no signs of wilting or browning.
Uniform Slicing: Slice the fennel bulbs uniformly to ensure even coating and consistent texture after candying.
Syrup Consistency: Pay attention to the consistency of your sugar syrup. It should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon but not so thick that it becomes grainy.

Flavor Variations: Experiment with additional flavorings to customize your candied fennel. Citrus zest, vanilla extract, or a pinch of ground spices like cinnamon or cardamom can add depth to the flavor.

Storage: Store your candied fennel in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. If stored properly, it can last for several weeks.
