Like a stronger version of anise seeds, star anise has a distinct, spicy licorice flavor.
Its intense flavor complements soups, stews and braising liquids. And it pairs particularly well with soy sauce and Chinese five spice.
Use it to add an authentic Far East flavor to your meals. Just make sure to discard the pod after cooking.
