Fennel is one of the best food for promoting good digestion. It can be eaten raw or cooked - flavor mellows in cooking.   Wash it, trim the stems off and slice it crosswise thin or thick - whichever you like.  You can fry it with onion and celery if you like and add it to ham and boiled potatoes.  Add it to any pasta sauce or pasta dish, and it is also great fried with onions and served on fish.  Some people slice it really thin and add it to a carrot or apple salad.
