ANISE & ANISE SEED

(Pimpinnella anisum)

Flavor/Aroma: 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.

Appearance: Pale brown, crescent shaped

Pairs Well With Spring Foods Like: Beets, carrots, fish/shellfish, melon, oranges, pork

Fresh anise leaves may be used in soups, stews and sauces. Anise seed oil is used to flavor liqueurs (Anisette, Ouzo, Pernod, etc), candies, cough drops and bakery goods.

Anise seeds can be used in breads, cakes, cookies, and apple pies. They can also be added to cream cheese, pickles and curries.

Anise seeds can also be chewed as a natural breath freshener.

1 pound anise seed = 5 cups
1 cup = 3oz+
1 oz = 5 TB
1 TB = 1/5 oz
