Print Friendly 

Description:
Fennel is a lovely herb, that can be used for many types of gardens. Try growing it in your kitchen garden, medicinal gardens and simply for attracting insects in your butterfly gardens. Any way you choose, fennel will be sure to please. Every part of fennel is not only for harvest, it tastes delicious! Fennel seeds are sweet and soothing, the flowers are edible in salads, the leaves are anise flavored and the root or bulb is commonly used raw in salads and cooked as a root vegetable. Medicinally, fennel is used in a tea to aid digestion, and also known to reduce hunger pains and sweeten the breath.

Ingredients:
For nursing mothers, fennel seed tea is used to increase milk. This is a great addition to a mother's milk tea. Fennel tea is also a soothing eyewash for conjunctivitis. Try growing fennel in your garden, just be aware of its tendency to reseed itself and take over your entire gardening space. To avoid this, keep the flower heads cut off so there are no seeds.

Description: Raw Cookies for you and your Pet
Here is an easy recipe for bars that you can also give to your animals.
Choose dried fruits that are unsulphured as many people and pets are sensitive to these additives which have been linked to allergic reactions, asthma, and bowel disorders. They may be slightly less appealing to the eye (colour may be darker), but the flavour will still be good. Store dried fruit in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
