Prepping Fennel | Tuesday's Tip of the Day!
If you ever wondered what fennel looks like and most importantly, how to quickly and efficiently cut one, you won’t want to miss this week’s Tip of the Day!
A few months ago, I wrote an overview on shopping for and preparing fennel. Today, I am keeping it short and sweet highlighting on expediting the prep so you can get it on the table just that much faster!
- Step 1: Remove top stalks. Reserve the fennel fronds for a beautiful garnish. Yes, they are edible!
- Step 2: Cut the fennel bulb in half from top to bottom (through the middle of the bottom root/stem).
- Step 3: Carefully remove the root by cutting a triangle around either side. It helps if you look at the inside (cut side) and using a knife, trace around the root (which forms in the shape of a triangle). Just make sure you lay the bulb on it’s cut side (flat surface) when you start so it doesn’t roll around on your board.
- Stem 4: Slice, dice and chop to your heart’s content!
