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.

Star Anise, Broken Pieces
Vadouvan Curry spice, used in a Pad See Ew variant with shrimp. Fantastic! My first experiment with Vadouvan, now I'm up to 6 curry spices in the cabinet.
These are wonderfully fragrant and flavorful! A fantastic addition to our warm apple cider.
These are terrific, I use them in a simmered pot with cinnamon and orange peel
One of most economical sources for star anise I’ve found.
