Steenbergs Organic Anise Seed is the dried berry from the anise plant.  Anise is a delicate, annual herb of the parsley family, which grows to 50cm tall (20 inches) and has feathery, flat, serrated leaves with a shape similar to the Italian flat parsley you get in the supermarkets.  The anise spice is harvested after the plant has flowered in late summer by picking the seed heads and drying these in a warm, ventilated area with some direct sunlight; when dry, the heads are rubbed to separate the seeds from the flowers and then sieved.  Aniseed spice consists of two tiny seeds (3mm long), which have a mild, sweet licquorice flavour that does not linger.


Steenbergs Organic Aniseed is a sweet spice that complements sweet baked goods really well, so is used in biscuits and cakes in Germany and Italy, as well as scattered through bread dough as in Scandinavian rye breads.  Aniseed goes well in chicken pies, in Indian curry vegetable dishes and also in vegetable soups.  Anise seed makes a good tea and is used by some as a digestif after a large meal, or in a spiced tea drink like Steenbergs Organic Migli to wet the baby's head in Asia Minor.


For more information on anise, take a look at Ingredientia and Wikipedia.


Steenbergs Organic Aniseed is part of Steenbergs core range of over 400 organic spices, peppers, herbs and flavoured sugars. For your local stockist click on "Where to see us", call 01765 640 088 or email enquiries@steenbergs.co.uk.
