Bring "star" power to your kitchen pantry with Regal whole star anise, ready to add flavor and depth to a variety of dishes!
Star anise delivers a strong aroma and licorice-like, warming flavor to foods and beverages. Use this spice to deepen the flavor of tomato-based sauces, jams, as well as meat and poultry dishes, especially pork and duck, and even mulled wine. Like anise seeds, star anise gets its distinctive licorice taste from a chemical compound called anethol. The two are not related botanically, though, as star anise is a member of the magnolia family. Star anise ranges from 6-10 points on a star, with each point containing a single seed.
Integral to East Asian Cuisine
Essential to East Asian cooking, star anise is used in Vietnamese pho, spiced chai, and braised beef dishes, and a multitude of other recipes to give them a warm, spicy undertone. Additionally, it is one of the essential spices in Chinese five spice, a blend used in a wide variety of cuisines.
