I know that this is most commonly used by nursing mothers, but I'm using it in making my marinara sauce in an attempt to replicate a great pasta sauce I had in the countryside outside Verona, Italy. While most people like sweet, I like bitter, or a balance at least. I'm still experimenting to get the right amount in the right balance. If anybody else has any cooking insights, let me know. I'm using the cut/sifted, not the powder.
