The seeds of anise are often used to flavor teas, candies, and cookies. They lend their flavor to black jelly beans, pizzelle (an Italian cookie), and pfeffernüsse (a German holiday cookie).
Anise is also used to flavor a number of ethic liquors such as absinthe, ouzo, and sambuca.
Try adding ground anise seeds to your sausage mixtures or pairing them with orange and clove seasoning in a bread.
Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors after last frost. Anise needs 120-130 days to mature fully, so plant as early as possible. Prefers well-drained average soil. Harvest seeds when they turn gray and come away from seed heads easily.
