Peas and Fennel

I was excited to get fennel from our CSA early in the season. In past years, the farmers have grown it late and it’s been a little tough. Unlike what you see at the grocery store, which is trimmed (for good reason), this fennel is about 30 inches high, with tons of fronds and a smallish but delicate bulb, We’ve been eating it raw, thinly sliced, as part of salad, but here I lightly braised fennel slices and combined them with snap peas from our garden. Simply prepared, this brings out the best of cooking and eating with the seasons.
