    • FLAVOUR AND AROMA – Star Anise has a very strong and distinctive anise flavour. It has a licorice-like aroma with hints of sweet and spicy. With the flavour being so strong, it is best used in small quantities. A little goes a long way, perfect for savory cooking.
    • USAGE – Excellent in slow-cooking casseroles. Star Anise is used to flavour alcoholic drinks such as pastis or gin & tonic. It pairs well with many savoury dishes, citrus, onions, poultry, beef and ginger. Star Anise can also be used in tea, soup and baked goods such as cookies and cakes.
    • COOKING WITH STAR ANISE – Star Anise is used to season much like your traditional spices. It can be used to simmer in sauces, marinades and soups, just remove the whole spice before serving or at the end of cooking. As Star Anise has a strong flavour, add a little towards the end to avoid overwhelming the other ingredients.
    • HEALTH BENEFITS – Star Anise has been used both as a spice and for medicinal purposes for many years. Rooted in Chinese medicine and more recently used in western medicine. It is used to ease congestion and common cold symptoms by simply adding to tea. Star Anise is rich in vitamins and antioxidants and can aid in improving digestion.
