I have a question about the recipe "Strawberry-Fennel Ice Cream" from gluttonforlife.
What is/where do you buy, fennel pollen?

In the past, we've bought it at Kalustyan's and you should be able to order it online here: http://www.kalustyans.com/.
thanks for the info...Considering I have never used it...and only see the one recipe which calls for it, is there a substitute?????/
pierino is a trusted source on General Cooking and Tough Love.
Zingerman's also sells it on-line but I also buy it at Surfas in Culver City. I use it mainly with pork, it never would have occurred to me to use in a dessert.
Kari is the manager of Whisk, a kitchenware store in Brooklyn.
The best fennel pollen, for the money, that i've found was at a small spice store in Westfield, NJ. Luckily, they have a webstore!
Don't think there is a substitute for fennel pollen. It is unique "taking the fennel seed, sweetening it and then intensifying it a hundred times" to quote the spicehouse website.
It goes a long way. Saveur magazine says you can use it on chicken and sea food, and pierino says he uses it on pork. It is a spice worth having around.
I am wrong there is a replacement in this recipe - just read it Amanda and Merrill said
"If you can't get fennel pollen, don't sweat it -- just add ground anise seed or fennel seed in the same proportion. - A&M"
Thanks so much...appreciate the update...b
