Anise/aniseed

By
From
Encyclopedia of Food and Cookery

A tall plant which has a pronounced licorice flavour. It is also known as sweet cumin. The tiny, greyish-brown seeds are dried for use in cooking and are called aniseed. To release the full flavour of the seeds, they may be crushed – but use them with a light hand, especially in savoury dishes, as the flavour can dominate. Aniseed is used in fish dishes, in particular some fish and vegetable curries and mussels. It is also added to cheeses, cakes, breads and confectionery, as well as some alcoholic drinks.
