These petite fennel seeds have such a potent flavor that they might even be better than fresh fennel. Earthier than tarragon, greener than star anise, and more savory than aniseed, Wild Foraged Afghan Fennel is amazingly aromatic and has warm notes of licorice. These whole seeds are harvested each summer from the outskirts of Herat by local foragers.
Founded in 2015 by a team of U.S. Army veterans who served in Afghanistan, Rumi Spice partners with more than 350 small village farmers to source hard-to-find Afghan spices. The company has provided jobs for more than 3,700 women and works to boost local agricultural economies. Every step of production, from harvesting to packaging in BPA-free glass bottles, is done in Afghanistan so that locals receive their fair share of the profits.
