Star Anise


This eight-point pod looks like a star, tastes like licorice, and is popular in Asian cuisine. Some Chinese chew the whole fruit as a breath freshener; the French and English use it to flavor liqueurs like Anisette and Pernod.

Use in Chinese cooking, Vietnamese noodle soup, Thailand iced black tea, and India curries.  Pairs well with meat and poultry dishes, soups, stocks, fruits and compotes.
