Star Anise is the seed pod from the fruit of the Illicium verum plant, an evergreen shrub native to Southwest China.
Star anise has a very pungent, distinct flavor that is sweet and spicy, similar to licorice, and should be used in small quantities. Although the flavor of star anise is generally thought of as sweet, it is commonly used in savoury dishes; it pairs well with citrus, onions, poultry, beef, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
