But seriously, slice it up and do a quick refrigerator pickle with it instead.
I've fed fennel fronds and cooked bulb to my hens. I chop the fronds herb-style ( mince). My hens enjoyed it. It lasted longer than any other treat because I thin k a little goes a long way.
My favorite fennel recipe is to braise it in milk to make a sauce. It just tastes yummy not anise-y like fennel.
