This exotic spice is often underused because the commonly sold form is too harsh. Our Star Anise flowers are sourced from their traditional location in Guangdong, and impart a lovely sweet and liquorice flavour to food. Use one flavour to flavour any liquids, or grind a small amount and use as any dry spice. Star Anise is highly versatile. We've seen it work great in cooking things from Tofu and Chicken, all the way to Desserts and in French Fine Dining.
