I just pulled a bunch of fennel, but I see taproots, not bulbs
The roots all look like the picture in the link below.
They are definitely fennel plants - they have yellow flowers, the seeds taste like licorice/sweet, and the leaves look like fennel leaves.
Can I use the roots still for soup or something?
I'm disappointed to learn that I don't have the bulb variety!
