Chapter 23. Fennel Oil
Things you’ll need:
2 cups olive oil
2 fennel bulbs
How to make the oil?
Step 1: Begin by cleaning the fennel bulbs. Wash them thoroughly under cool water.
Step 2: Since you will use only the bulbs, trim the stems and leaves. Then, chop the bulbs into small cubes.
Step 3: Pour the olive oil in a saucepan and add the fennel cubes.
Step 4: Place the saucepan over high heat and when the mixture begins to boil, reduce the heat and leave to simmer for an hour.
Step 5: Use a sieve to strain the oil. Press the fennel solids with your flexible spatula to squeeze out the oil.
Step 6: Store the oil in a dark bottle, seal and keep in your fridge.
