Now this is weird...I would have SWORN I had written and submitted a review for this. Made for ZWT3. I was very pleasantly surprised with it. I am not generally a fan of anise but this was buttery and delicious. I am glad I tried it!

I'd never had fennel before and was a little apprehensive as to whether I'd enjoy it. The flavour was certainly mellower than the smell. Not sure if I'd have it again however that's just my tastebuds. A very easy recipe - thanks! Made for ZWT3.

Wonderful. I love fennel and this is a very nice way to prepare it. I also needed to cook the fennel longer than 30 minutes, but that's ok. The aroma was so enticing and the dish was worth the wait. Thanks for sharing.

This was good but not mind blowing. I think I'll use 2 pinches of saffon & simmer in the stock/wine to get it more infused. I am a big fan of fennel & like finding new ways to cook it so THANK YOU, Rita!!!

It's fun to try a new veggie; and while fennel isn't totally strange to me, cooking it is. Thank you RitaL for posting this easy recipe that turned out to be just delicious. My fennel heads were on the small side yet they still needed a little more than the 30 minutes to cook to perfection. I followed the recipe as written except for the saffron. How disappointing to discover my precious stash was depleted. In desperation I grabbed my tuneric and used it, knowing the flavor wouldn't be quite the same. My DH and I both enjoyed this dish and I can't wait to make it for my fennel loving DD.
