Frontier Anise Seed Whole CERTIFIED ORGANIC 1.50 oz. Bottle
Pimpinella anisum L.
Anise seed is used extensively to flavor liquors, cookies, cakes, fruit dishes, coleslaw, rye bread, apple pie and meats. It also makes a wonderful addition to teas.
The sweet, licorice-like flavor of anise seed has been enjoyed since ancient times. Try it in cookies, cakes, breads, fruit dishes and main dish recipes like goulash and stews. Anise is a member of the Umbelliferae family which also includes fennel, caraway, coriander and dill, to name a few. It requires a long, warm, frost-free growing season of at least 120 days, and thrives in poor, dry soil. Growing to a height of 18 inches, the plant features small white flowers in early summer. The seeds appear in late summer and are light greenish-brown to brown when dried. Although the seed has an aroma and flavor reminiscent of licorice, the two are completely unrelated.
