Tips for preparing: As with many vegetables that grow layers, dirt can collect between the layers. I don’t seem to have much issue, but if you are concerned, slice thinly and then rinse and spin dry in salad spinner. The green tops (if you should have them) are not tender..you can cut off the little ferny side leaves and use fresh, or you can toss the stalks in soup of the roasting pan to season the rest of your meal…discarding the fennel stalks after.
