For those of you who are playing with fennel for the first time, here are a few tips to help you out. Start by removing the tops of the fennel bulb. You can hold on to these to add depth to your chicken, beef or veggie stock, if you’re planning to make your own stock for soups to warm your chilled winter bones. Next, stand the bulb on it’s root and halve it vertically, cutting from the top through the center of the core.

Then lay the cut side down and, starting at the root end, cut the core out in a wedge shape. This is what will allow you to cut the layers of fennel into slices, similar to how you would slice an onion.
