Anise, also known as sweet cumin, is used in numerous regions, including the Eastern Mediterranean, Middle East,
Central America, Egypt, the Mediterranean, Spain, and Turkey, to name a few.

Anise is an annual that is planted between February and March and harvested from June through August. During harvest, just before the fruit fully ripens, the plants are pulled up, air-dried, and finally separated from the plant. The final result produces the light to pale brown to green and gray tiny oval shape seeds.

Anise has a licorice-like taste and aroma with a touch of bitterness. The whole or ground seeds are perfect for both sweet and savory dishes, as well as alcoholic beverages such as pastis, arrack, anisette, and ouzo. Use to season beets, fish and shellfish, bread, cookies, marinades, fruits, and vegetables.
