Star Anise

China / Illicium verum
  • Double sized star anise whole

About

This pretty, star-shaped spice has an intensely sweet licorice taste and smell, offering a notable counter-point of flavor. It has many uses both alone and in combination. Star anise pairs beautifully with sweet potatoes and pumpkin, and offers a unique addition to caramelized onions. Just toss a small piece in the pan and it really brings out the 'beefiness' of the onions. Star anise is a key ingredient in Chinese Five Spice, and flavors the beef stock for the Vietnamese soup, pho.
