Anise is distinguished by its strong licorice-like flavor and aroma. The seeds are characterized by minty, piney and fruity flavor notes. Anise's flavor also resembles that of fennel but is somewhat sweeter.
Anise is used whole or ground in cookies, cakes, breads, cheese, pickles, stews, fish and shellfish dishes. Roasting enhances the flavor.
Add one or two pods to impart a pungent, licorice-like flavor to soups and sauces, or to stewed fruit compotes or spiced jams for a hint of savory with the sweet.
Star Anise is not the same as Anise Seed, although both share an essential oil called Anethole (Licorice Taste) which is why they have a similar flavor.
