Star anise is one of the central spices in Chinese cooking. It has a strong anise flavour, with a liquorice-like aroma. The dominant flavour in Chinese five-spice powder, star anise is also used to flavour alcoholic drinks such as pastis. The whole spice is an attractive eight-pointed star, but star anise is more often found ground to a powder.
Slightly bitter than the regular Anise flavor, Star Anise is also more pungent with a penetrative aroma. Bombard your dishes with the intense flavor of Star Anise and fall in love with its attributes.
Star Anise is known for its versatility. Baked goods, desserts, sauces or dips, they work incredibly in all. Use ground star anise in baking or with duckling, or put the whole spice in a slow-cooking casserole or flavor your drinks. You won't be disappointed.
