Fennel is a plant that grows wild in a Mediterranean climate. The seeds are dried to use as a spice all year long, most notably in Sicilian-style sausages. But the plant itself has a bulbous stalk, a pithy center, and long, feathery leaves. The whole thing is edible, and resemebles celery in texture and structure, though the flavor is lighter and sweeter and, well, a bit licorice-like. It is mostly served raw, either as a crudité or in salads, but it can also be cooked in a number of ways and served hot or cold.
