Fennel, a plant the ancient Greeks held as sacred to the God Dionysus, grows wild on the sunny coastal fields and hills of California. The Pollen found on the tiny yellow flowers can be blended with other spices to create an inspiring aromatic dry rub or seasoning for fish, fowl or vegetarian entrees. The spice rubs also can be used as delicate substitute for saffron in ice dishes or as an intriguing seasoning for potato salad.
