Ok, this may be a stupid question to some of you, but not to me...

What is fennel? and where do I find it?

Fennel is an herb that has a slightly licorice taste to it. It can be used fresh or in seed form for flavoring.
You can see a photo of it here:

It can be purchased in the produce section of most grocery stores. I live in a teeny midwestern town and we even have it here.
