I have some fresh fennel tops that are the flower heads only. What should I do with them? Dry the flowers whole?

I was taking off the pollen or petals, whatever the yellow part is. I heard it is quite expensive. I'll try to experiment with something.

I marinated some chicken thighs with:

Dried fennel pollen
Paprika
Garlic powder
Dried thyme
dried rosemary
Dried oregano
Garlic oil
Black pepper

Im going to grill it

I was going for an Italian sausage seasoning, but on chicken. Smells great

It's really expensive and really trendy in restaurants..
The stuff I've seen came dried and vac-packed.
It's pretty subtle and I imagine it would be easy to overpower the flavour. Then again, if you've got your own, you can go pretty heavy on it: I've only used small amounts as a garnish.
How about sprinkled over something like good dried pasta, goat's cheese, grilled fennel bulb and roast tomato?

MMmmmm.. with the goats cheese sounds good. I think I may try that one.
