Anise is one of the earliest herbs and spices recognized to humanity. It is from the Mediterranean region. Aniseed has a sweet liquorice like flavour, similar to fennel seeds. It is traditionally used to flavour spirits like Sambuca, Raki and Ouzo. Aniseed is also used in sweet and savoury dishes or brewed for tea.
Anise is a powerful plant that boasts numerous health benefits. It has anti-fungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It may help fight stomach ulcers, regulate blood sugar levels and reduce symptoms of depression and menopause.
Aniseed is quite potent - a little goes a long way. It can be used whole or ground into powder. The simplest way to enjoy this aromatic herb is by brewing some tea. It can be added to sweets including biscotti, cakes, cookies, shortbread and tarts. Aniseed is also a common seasoning in sausages.
