About Star Anise

Star anise - the fruit of a Far Eastern shrub (Illicium verum), star anise is shaped like an eight-pointed star and contains shiny seeds with an aniseed flavour. It's used widely in Chinese cooking and is one of the five spices in Chinese five-spice powder, but also a real depth of flavour to any tomato based sauces.

Certain Thai curry pastes and soups use star anise, and authentic Thai iced tea uses this as a flavouring. The anise should not be eaten whole, but it looks pretty in the dish and imparts a wonderful aroma. Star Anise is also used very effectively in making aromatic pot pourri and treat infants for colic.

Some lovely recipes on the site - I would never have considered using star aniseed in a dessert but that just shows my limitations - it actually works really well. It has inspired me to adapt other recipes too.

Vegetarian Jersey Royals, Spiced Poached Pears and Roquefort Salad Recipe

Summary: Oh, how I wish you could taste this ! Roasted Jersey Royal potatoes, pear wedges simply poached in water and spices, Roquefort, with mixed salad leaves lightly dressed in a garlic mustard dressing. Feel free to use another blue cheese, if you can't get Roquefort. When poaching fruit, sugar is usually added to the poaching liquid, but I find this isn't necessary. I just leave the sugar out, and the fruits show case their natural sweetness. The flavours in this salad just go so well together ! Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a starter.
