Star anise is the fruit of a small evergreen tree native to Asia. These star shaped fruits are picked right before ripening and dried before use. They contain the same essential oil as the anise seed which gives the two a nearly identical strong, sweet licorice flavor. Anise seed is a lovely spice that can add a wonderful aroma and flavor to your cooking.

Enjoy Star Anise

Anise seed can be used in whole or ground form to add an aromatic licorice flavor to recipes. Star anise is commonly used in its whole form to flavor teas, marinades, soups, broths, and other liquids. It is generally removed before serving. A staple in Asian cuisine, star anise can improve the flavor of many savory dishes. In its ground form, star anise is potent and can be added directly to foods. Experiment with this sweet and delicious spice in your cooking to discover its versatility.

Health Benefits of Star Anise

Star anise is packed with protective antioxidants which neutralize damaging free radicals in the body. Supplementing your diet with antioxidant-rich foods such as anise seed can help prevent the onset of degenerative diseases. This aromatic spice is also rich in B-complex vitamins and vitamin C which improve immune system function. It is also a good source of minerals such as calcium, potassium, and iron. Extremely high levels of iron help deliver oxygen throughout the body, making star anise a particularly invigorating spice. By the spoonful, star anise provides a rich supply of dietary fiber, to support digestive health.

I've only used one so far but there's lots in the bag and all seems whole so far. Definitely worth the price when shopping around.
