Infuse your soups, curries and stir-fries with the fragrant Star Anise. You can also ground the pods & seeds and substitute the warm, sweet, licorice-like flavor for Anise seed in your dessert recipes (youíll need to use less though as Star Anise has a stronger taste).
Star Anise is the dried fruit from an evergreen tree cultivated in China & Vietnam, which is why it is a primary ingredient in that regionís cuisine. In fact, itís one of the main herbs in the popular Chinese Five-Spice powder.
