Aniseed for the western kitchen, is star anise for the eastern kitchen. Star anise (Illicium verum), also called Chinese anise, is a tree or bush that grows in Asia whose dried fruit is used as a spice. The fruits are plucked before they are ripe. During the drying process, they open in the form of a star with a seed in each point. The taste can be found in the skin of the fruit and is herbal and drop-mint like. Star anise has a stronger scent and is richer and stronger than the anise plant.
