What is the finocchietto?
The finocchietto is a liqueur that is produced in the province of Salerno and in all the interior areas of the region. The fennel liqueur has a straw-yellow colour and an alcohol content of about 30 ° degrees and is particularly appreciated for its digestive properties, so much so that, besides being produced for domestic use, it has been successfully marketed by Some local artisan workshops that sell it in bottles of different shapes and sizes.
To prepare it, let macerate in alcohol for 15-20 days the dried seeds of wild fennel, prepared to which it joins the syrup of water and sugar. It is not necessary to let it rest, once bottled you can, in fact, consume immediately, preferably cold.
