Additional Information:
Aniseed, commonly also known as “anise,” “anis,” or “anise seed,” is a herb with a faint liquorice taste that is common in Mediterranean cooking. Its formal name is Pimpinella anisum, and it is in the biological family Apiaceae — the same family as parsley, dill, coriander, and cumin. Both seed and leaves carry the plant’s distinctive liquorice taste, but the seeds are usually the only parts that humans consume. They are often used to flavour baked goods and savoury broths; their essential oils are also believed to have some medicinal properties.

Despite its near worldwide cultivation, anise remains most popular in recipes from the Mediterranean region. It is very common in baked goods such as bread, cakes, and cookies; the slight sweetness of the herb adds a complexity and interesting dimension to otherwise more “ordinary” recipes. Many cooks will also add it to soups, stews, and savoury sauces for similar reasons. The herb tends to open when simmered, which can release many of its essential oils. The result is often an intricately flavoured meal that does not require much effort on the part of the cook.

Aniseed is also the predominant flavour in a number of Mediterranean liqueurs. The Greek drink ouzo carries its distinctive flavour, as do the Italian Sambuca, the French Pernod, and the Turkish Arak. Most of these are served as cordials and after dinner drinks.

Storage Advice:
Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.

• Store in an airtight container.
• Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
• Store away from direct heat or sunlight.
• Keep lid tightly closed when not in use.
