Step by step

Add the fennel seeds and adjust for salt

Tips
If you don’t like fennel seeds to remain in the dish when finished you can wrap them up in a piece of gauze instead, making them easy to remove at the end. Alternatively, replace them with a bay leaf.
Trivia
The cuisine of Busto Arsizio is known as ‘bustocca’: once, it is claimed, this dish was made from bits of meat that were eliminated during the tanning process. This theory is not well supported, and therefore a second version is that the meat scraps were simply slaughter waste.
