DESCRIPTION:

Star anise is one of the most unique and distinctive spices not only by flavor and aroma, but by its physical appearance. This very strongly aromatic spice comes jam packed with a fennel/anise aroma. Used extensively for essential oils, it is perhaps even more commonly used in Asian cuisines. Most popular in curries, soups and teas; from India all the way through to Japan and south into Malaysia. Roasting the spice slightly prior to use in soups and curries brings out a next level type of taste one will not soon forget.
