Anise Star, Star Anise Pods, Organic, Illicium verum
|Ingredients||Anise Star Pods|
Star anise is an Asian cooking ingredient from Illicium verum, an aromatic evergreen tree found in Southern China, Vietnam, and parts of Japan. The tree is extensively cultivated for its useful culinary spice, and is also grown ornamentally in other parts of the world. This spice is widely used in Chinese cuisine, as well as in foods from Southeast Asian nations including Thailand and Vietnam.
It consists of the dried seedpods of the tree and has a flavor much like anise, a spice widely used in European cuisine. Star anise, however, is slightly more pungent, bitter, and intense.
In traditional Chinese medicine, star anise is used to calm stomach complaints.
