What part of the fennel goes into the turkey?

CurlieGlamourGirlie Nov 21, 2012 07:57 PM

I decided to stuff my turkey with lemons, onions and fennel instead of stuffing! This is a silly question, but what part of the fennel goes into the bird - is it the leafy, dill-like top, the white bulbous bottom or both? Do I chop up the bulb and put it in?

    I'd stick the bulb in whole. - as you would a whole onion.

      Personally I would put the fronds (green stocks and dill looking tops) in and save the bulb for my consumption, either roasted or just raw tossed in olive oil, salt, pepper and maybe a bit of lemon. You certainly could put both inside with no trouble.

        I'd do the same. That bulb is too good to throw away after turkey roasts.
