Spicy and sweet with strong liquorice notes.
Star Anise comes from the magnolia family and is shaped like an eight pointed star, each point containing a single seed. In Chinese culture this pointy spice is believed to signify good luck. More intense than Anise, in Japanese culture Star Anise is also traditionally burned as Incense.
Star Anise is the key ingredient in the Chinese Five Spice blend and the hero of most Chinese and south Asian dishes. It is perfect for marinating and flavouring rich fatty meats such as pork belly and duck. Its full, sweet, intense flavour is a great addition to mulled wine, tea, and jams.
Star Anise, high in Iron and containing Fibre, is thought to aid digestion and act as an antioxidant and anti-bacterial agent.
