Your nails are purple / blue unless that is a nail polish those could be a sign of iron anemia

If the stalks of fennel are missing at the store it's usually because they've wilted because it sat there for too long. And don't throw them away, if they're fresh just cut them in wheels and they add a nice crunch to salads, almost like fennel-tasting croûtons.

Yes, the stalks are great to use. I work in fine dining; I have seen them used by our chef as a fennel marmalade, or cut up and pickled. The marmalade was great with lamb.

Thanks for this informative video! I grew up on a farm in the South, and so I thought I knew practically everything about every vegetable -- but fennel wasn't around when I was a kid, and yesterday I saw it in the supermarket and decided that I should finally figure out what one does with it.

I just discovered fennel today; fresh from a farm. I LOVED IT! Ate it all (bulb and stem) like a carrot. So delicious! Now a new 'Go-to' veggie in the produce department! Great recipe; I look forward to making that salad!

Great video, however my constructive criticism is that the audio is too loud therefore it is clipping (distorted; overloaded). Either talk quieter, move the mic further away, turn down the levels or check for errors anywhere from your recording process to your editing process. Otherwise great!

turn your volume down is also a suggestion

Loved your instructions as I wasn't sure how to handle the fennel I got in my produce box. I made this terrific slaw. Didn't think I'd like fennel but it's light and refreshing. http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/celery-apple-and-fennel-slaw

Using fennel for the first time in my mother's Springtime cleanse soup, but am trying a few new vegetable ingredients that weren't available to her back in the day and fennel sounds wonderful from your video...I'm even going to save a piece for me to try that salad you demonstrated today while the fennel is still fresh.  The fact that it's packed with antioxidants will just add to this wonderful soup's "cleansing" powers, I'm sure. Can't wait...btw I'm seeing you have one on beets as well, so going to look at that, too, to see what info you might have to share on it. Keep up the good work!  8^)

blanch the fennel in boiling salted water for a few minutes. drain. get a frying pan....add some olive oil and garlic, add the fennel to the pan. season with salt and pepper. then add a handful of sugar and a tablespoon of white wine vinegar. keep cooking until the sugar and vinegar almost becomes a syrup. then your fennel is ready. this recips is Italian sweet and sour fennel. goes great with grilled sea bass.
Cece Winslow (7 months ago)

Thank you for the explanation. I have never cooked with our used fresh fennel before and a stock was included in my Fresh Farm delivery. I love the last salad you suggested with the olive oil, clementine, olive oil and lemon juice. I've got those!! TY

Hi Dani thanks for this videos. Could you please tell me how to preserve cilantro. I love it but all the time i have to throw it away wilt, dry, yellow color. You understand right??
Debbie Holland (4 years ago)
cut the dry root end of the stems off and put it in a glass of water like you would fresh cut flowers. Cover the tops loosely with a sandwich or any small plastic bag and store in the frig. Works great with celery.
