Expert Tips

Both types of fennel are used in cooking. Florence fennel, also called finocchio, is the bulb that is prepared raw and cooked in salads, stews and soups. Fennel seed comes from common fennel, which doesn't produce a bulb. The aromatic stems and feathery greens from both fennels are nice in salad.

When green bell peppers are allowed to ripen on the vine, they turn red. Yellow, orange, purple and brown sweet bell peppers are different varieties.

Fennel, red and yellow bell peppers are all excellent sources of vitamin A.

Roasting is cooking foods in the oven without a cover. Roasted foods have a browned exterior and a moist interior.
