Anise – More exactly I should say, “Star Anise” since that is how I use it here in my recipes.  I like to use the whole pods when steeping the flavor into a recipe, but ground anise seeds are wonderful spice additions to many recipes as they impart a licorice or anise flavor. The seeds, whole or ground, are used in a wide variety of regional and ethnic confectioneries including black jelly beans and Italian Pizelle.
