One of the prettiest by far…star anise is native to China and Vietnam and is used in both sweet and savoury dishes. It combines particularly well with poached fruit, pork and duck, soups and stews. Best used with a moist heat application added at the beginning of cooking and simmering gently to release a delicious liquorice-like flavour.
Stick it in the cupboard, store in an airtight container after opening.
Made in a factory which also contains celery, coconut, wheat, mustard, soya and sulphur dioxide.
