Shaped like a star, Organic Star Anise boasts a sweet, licorice-like flavor with a hint of spice. Whole star anise is used in broths and braises, while ground star anise powder is a common ingredient in spice blends like five-spice powder.

Star Anise is one of the more beautiful spices in appearance having a beautiful 8 pointed star formation around the flavor filled seeds. A sweet licorice aroma and flavor make this spice a popular choice for use in preparing absinthe Vietnamese pho soup and garam masala. In addition to these dishes star anise is also used as one of the primary spice ingredients in Chinese 5 Spice Powder.
