Licorice Root, Organic Chopped
The flavor of licorice is often associated with those hard, chewy black candies that use artificial licorice flavor. The flavor of real licorice is super-sweet, heady, and so indescribable that licorice lovers call it the sixth taste (after salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and umami). It's currently enjoying a vogue among top Chicago chefs for its verstility and the rich savory flavor it brings to any dish from soup to dessert. The sweet flavor blends especially well in Asian meat dishes and Italian baked goods.
Use this chopped dried root whole in marinades and tea, or grind to blend into sauces or rubs, or for baking.
