RE: [CHAT bronze fennel/fennel seeds

It's also quite good in herb butter though in small amounts.  About one teaspoon per 2 pounds of butter.
Also, I have read tea made w/ the seeds is a good appetite supressant.
Haven't tried that yet, though probably should if I listened to my
doctor, the stringbean. Just got done watering BTW. ugh.
