    Star anise are star-shaped fruits with a powerful sweet liquorice flavour. Star anise tastes a bit sharper than anise seed.

    In Southern Europe star anise is a popular spice in fish dishes. In the Netherlands people add star anise to stewed pears, mussels or apple sauce. Star anise also gives a delicious aroma to pastry.

    Star anise in your tea

    Use a couple of loose star anise in your tea. It looks pretty and adds a mild sweet flavour to your tea. The perfect finishing touch for a tea party!

    Use of star anise

    Let star anise simmer or cook with the rest of the dish or add some ground star anise at the end. When a recipe says you have to use the peel of star anise, then break off one of the arms of the star.

    Star anise is an ideal spice to intensify meat flavour in beef stew, marinade and gravy. Half a star anise for every caramalized/baked onion as base for a sauce.

    Star anise works well in combination with cassia cinnamon, chili powder, coriander, fennel, garlic, ginger, lemongrass and szechuan pepper.
