Roasted apples and fennel brings you a sweet, nutty licorice-anisey flavor. It’s a wonderful combination that you can serve as a standalone side dish or puree and add to your favorite savory soup. Fennel tastes like a cross between licorice and cabbage. When you roast fennel, it brings out the licorice flavor but also adds a slightly nutty twist to the flavor. It is also a great addition to a roasted potato or carrot dish.
A great blend of flavors that compliment each other in a sweetly, nutty and licorice-y anise-y way.
