Dried Star Anise - 8 ounce
This spice closely resembles anise in flavor, obtained from the star-shaped pericarp of Illicium verum, a small native evergreen tree of southwest China. These star-shaped fruits are harvested just before ripening and are widely used in many cuisines and can be used to garnish cocktails. Because of its licorice-like flavor, it works well with fall/winter baking and savory recipes. Use in cocktails and teas. Perfect when poaching fruit!
