Star Anise Pieces

Cooks from Saigon to Little Saigon infuse pho with this delicate spice. Star Anise Pieces lend Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup a sweet richness reminiscent of licorice. In Europe, it 'stars' in poached pears and tea infusions. Also available in Hand Select Star Anise, or Ground Star Anise.

Star anise is common in many Chinese dishes, especially recipes involving pork or chicken. Also known as Chinese anise, it features the same three essential oils as the unrelated anise seed. The flavor of star anise is noticeably stronger than the anise seed. Our Whole Star Anise can be used in pickling and brining, marinades, and tea; you can also steep these pieces in milk when making ice cream or custard to add an extra licorice-like note. Ingredients: Star anise.
