braised baby fennel

Apparently, growing fennel takes a bit longer than we had anticipated. And admittedly, we have been getting anxious. So, a few days ago, we picked the bulbs while they were still very young, and made this dish of braised baby fennel. As you can see in the photos, we didn’t get to enjoy much. But, the small bite we did receive held great promise for a potentially amazing future meal. The licorice taste of the fennel couples so well with the anchovies. And the mix of spice and citrus (here, orange zest) has never failed me yet.
