  1. I have one fennel growing in the garden this year. I only grew it once before and didn’t know what to do with it so I just saved the seeds. Do I use the whole thing or do I just take like a stalk? Do you use the top of the stalk? I cut the seeds yesterday so it would continue to grow and not seed out. Did I make a mistake? I must research this. Thanks for the recipe. I don’t have blueberry jam but can improvise since I do have blueberries. I think this will go well with the trout I am cooking for dinner tonight.

    • We get our final from the CSA, so I don’t really know how it grows. We get the bulb from the CSA, with about three or 4 inches of stem connect to it.
