Q: We have a deer hindquarter and want to cook a roast or some small steaks. My husband says the cooks in Pennsylvania used fennel in cooking venison.

The fennel seed we bought is a mystery to us.

Do we pulverize it and use it as if in a salt shaker? What would be the best way?

Editor: Fennel seed can be used whole or ground up — it's up to you! If you choose to use it whole, just crack the seeds slightly with the bottom of a frying pan or pot to start to release the oils.

Readers, how do you like to use fennel seed?

Next question?
