Default Fennel stalks?

Just curious to see if anyone here has tried them. I know they can be used
for fish stock but... I read that you can eat them as you would celery and
they are good for stuffing. I wound up throwing mine out, again but just
curious for the future. I think the fennel I bought was past its prime.
Had a lot of stalk and fronds and not much bulb. Plus it was tough. I was
afraid to eat it lest I not digest it. But husband liked it!

I made roasted fennel the other day and since the subject had come up, I did
try eating a stalk. It tasted OK, and I'm sure others would like it just
fine, but I wasn't crazy about it, so I personally wouldn't choose to eat
them on a regular basis.

My late usbnd loved to just eat the stalks and the round part that peeled
from the bulb(base of stalks). He used it as a great crunchy snack. I
know some poel use the feathery frond as a seasoning in salads or soups,
etc. If you cna handle clery with yoru digestive problems you most lkely
sould handle the fannel. Try a little and see how you like it and
tolerate it. It has a lovely licorice flavor raw that largely dissapates
when cooked.

Why would you buy something you did not know how to prepare only to
throw it away?

Thanks! I didn't eat this stuff because it was very tough. I think it was
old.

I *did* know how to prepare the bulbs. Apparently you are not familiar with
fennel. The stalks are routinely thrown away or used for fish broth which I
do not make.

Actually when I tried it the stalks were tender, but...I didn't like it
much, too much licorice flavor when raw for me.

I didn't notice any licorice flavor when cooked. But it could be there raw.

I chop them up and put them in stir frys. They need to cook longer
because of the toughness. I would put them in first. They are
delicious that way.

You do know you do not have to use Chinese seasonings when stir
frying.

Of course. It's just that we don't like that doneness of food. We all
prefer our vegetables raw.
