Star Anise
A real star...
We'd like you to meet illicium verum and pipinella anisum, more affectionately known as star anise and anise seeds. Harvested from magnolia and hemlock trees, these distinctive spices are known for their licorice flavour. They can be found in Ouzo, the classic Greek liqueur, anise spices are also added to fresh fish, mussels, to a salad, or to bread. Anise, sure to make you a star.
