Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) belongs to the group Apiaceae and it originates from Mediterrannean coast. It was grown by ancient Greeks and Romans due to its medical properties. It is rather popular with Roman ladies who chew it due to its diuretic effect and ability to eliminate fat tissue around the waist. Today it is grown around the world and it represents an aromatic plant which is more and more used as food. Each part of the plant is edible – roots and the stem are most usually used for cooking stews and soups, whereas the seeds are used as aromatic spice for liqueurs, candies and perfumes.
