It resembles a thickened,shortened celery head topped with feathery green foliage.  To taste, it has a distinctive aniseed flavor. Like most vegetables, fennel is best picked small and a maximum width  of about 11 or 12 cm across the base is advisable, any larger and it tends to become tough and stringy.

Fennel can be boiled, steamed or braised until tender, then served with lemon juice, parsley or butter. For those who find the aniseed flavor too strong. soaking in the vinegar for an hour can reduce the intensity or use only a small amounts to flavor soups and other dishes.
