McCormick Whole Anise Seed 18oz 510g|
McCormick Anise, with its warm licorice and mildly fennel-like flavor, was once thought to be a charm against bad dreams and evil-eye. Anise is popular in liqueurs and candies, anise is also known as a digestive aid. French chefs use anise extract to flavor eclairs. Italian bakers know anise to be the secret ingredient in biscotti (using only the seeds or extract as ground anise quickly loses flavor).
The culinary description is that anise is distinguished by its strong licorice-like flavor and aroma. The flavor of the anise seeds is characterized as minty, piney, and fruity. Anise's flavor resembles fennel but is somewhat sweeter. Anise is the dried ripe fruit of the herb Pimpinella anisum. The tear-shaped seeds are unmistakably identified by their distinctive licorice-like flavor.
Anise Seed should be purchased only in the whole form because anise loses its flavor very quickly once it is ground. Use anise seed either whole or crushed, in cakes, breads, cookies, beverages, soups, stews, fruit salads, dressings, sauces, and with fish or shellfish. Anise is essential in Oysters Rockefeller and excellent when used in orange sauce for chicken or duck. Anise is widely used in Italian and Indian cooking.
