Bonbons de Fenouil / India
Candied fennel is fennel seed covered in a brightly coloured sugar coating that takes on and brings out the licoricy flavour of the fennel within. A pinch of candied fennel is an ideal palate freshener after a meal ? especially a spicy one ? since it freshens the breath and aids digestion. Fennel is important in both Chinese herbal medicine and Ayurveda to help to overcome gas, cramps, acid indigestion, and many other digestive tract maladies. If the sweetness of candied fennel is too much for you, mix it with plain fennel seeds.
