Star-shaped and tasting of anise, they didn’t use too much imagination when naming Star Anise!
It has a liquorice-like aroma and taste that is actually stronger than anise, the spice used to flavour liquorice sweets. Star Anise is used in Chinese cuisine, especially in slow-cooked meat dishes. It goes particularly well with sweet and savoury sauces and the sweet, sticky Chinese spare ribs will almost always have been flavoured with Star Anise.
