What is aniseed ground?

Aniseed ground comes from the anise plant. This plant belongs to the umbellifer family. The plant has its origins in the Mediterranean, but is now also cultivated in other subtropical places in various continents. The ground anise that you can buy online from us comes from Syria. The plant enjoys the full sun and seems to enhance its warm, sweet character with every ray of sunshine. The aniseed aroma is stored in the flowers.

The difference between ground aniseed and star anise is often confused. Not so strange, because in terms of taste the two are very similar. Yet the two are completely different in origin. Star anise comes from a tree that grows in Asia. Star anise is slightly more bitter and has a stronger taste of liquorice root than anise seed. It owes its strong taste to the large amounts of anethole which is found in essential oils of anise. Never replace aniseed ground in a recipe for star anise.

How to use it?

Aniseed ground is used to make anise bread. It is also an important ingredient in the preparation of peppernuts. In general, aniseed ground is very useful in biscuits and cakes. It also fits very well with various types of fruit, especially the apple. In Asian dishes anise is often used in a curry or in the preparation of fish. As for other herbs and spices, the aniseed ground makes a great team with fennel, cumin, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and cardamom.
