Star Anise, Whole

Product Overview

Star anise has a strong liquorice flavour with warm, sweet notes. The distinctive star shapes are visually appealing, and each point of the star holds a glossy amber seed. Star anise is a main component of Chinese cuisine to infuse teas, soups (pho) and for braising liquids.

Moreover, across Europe, star anise is partnered with fruits to make jams and syrups. Mixologists love using the stars to garnish Gin and Tonics and cocktails for dramatic visual effect and a mellow liquorice flavour.

    I make my own spicy plum sauce to accompany crispy duck and this is the magic ingredient
