I buy a new spice about once a month, usually intending to use it for some partcicular dish. This month is was fennel seed, which I just ground up with my new mortar & pestle. I've become a huge fan of roasted potatoes, which we never had much when I was growing up, and am experimenting with different spices when cooking. This time, it is:
Fennel seed, ground
Cut up potatoes, mix in olive oil and spices, and bake for 45 minutes or until soft on the inside and crispy on the outside!
