Star Anise Badiane or Chinese Star Anise is a spice that closely resembles anise in flavour. Obtained from the starshaped pericarp of illicium verum a small native evergreen tree of southwest china.
Star anise is a wonderful flavour for asian soups and stocks, and for chicken, duck and pork, as well as seafood recipes. It has sweet and fragrant flavouring that also suits poaching syrups for pears as well as for mulled wine.
