Fennel Pollen?

Posenose Nov 21, 2012 04:59 AM

Hi there,
A recipe I'm making for T-Giving calls for fennel pollen. It's too late now for me to get it probably, but wondering if anyone knows where I can buy some in the area?

    Thanks everyone, I found it at Formaggio for the low low price of $18.95 (yipes). After tasting it, I kind of feel like I could have ground up fennel seeds and achieved the same effect, but it was a fun quest nonetheless.

      Christina's spices in Cambridge always has it. It's on the shelf behind the cash register (next to the saffron), so you have to ask for it.

        Follow the Honey in Cambridge might have it --- worth a telephone call.

          possibly Penzey's Spices in Arlington.

            No, Penzey's has whole & ground fennel seed, but not fennel pollen.

                  A butternut squash caponata recipe from Mario Batali. I have never watched "The Chew" but randomly caught it on the other day and he was making it and it looked intriguing. I'll let you know how it works out!
