Every other week I get a box of organic produce from farmfreshtoyou.com.
I love getting the boxes, like a kid at Christmas time. It's cheaper then the store and they bring it right to you. I've gotten things I've never eaten like Fuyu Persimmons (I've only had the other kind), chard (who knew it was SOO GOOD!)m broccoli Rabe (not so great) and fresh beets (which I love but always buy precooked). Its great to try stuff I wouldn't buy on my own. When you sign up for the service they ask if there is anything you definately don't want, which I think is a nice thing because some people are picky.
Today I got something I am pretty sure I put on my 'do not send' list-Fennel. I've had fennel once, and hated it. I really dislike Anise flavoring at the time and thats what Fennel is. I love its soft, feathery green fronds but that black licorice taste has never won me over. However, now that one bulb has landed in my lap, I am willing to give it a try. I just found this recipe online I think I'll try this week.
If you have a good Fennel recipe, please send it to me. I'm open to learning to love this veggie!
