Star anise is a dried, star-shaped fruit called Illicium verum. It is dark-brown in colour with eight segments. It has a sweetish liquorice taste added to it. The star-shaped fruits are picked just before ripening and dried before use and consumptions. They contain the same amount of essential oil as the botanically related to Spanish anise seed, which gives the two a nearly identical flavour – strong,intense, sweet, and liquorice.
