Anise Seed Powder Organic - 45g

View larger Image

Steenbergs Organic Aniseed Powder is ground from the fruits of organic anise plants - often (even normally) called anise seeds, they are really the fruit of the anise plant inside which there are two seeds.  Anise is an annual herb of the parsley family and has a mild, sweet licquorice flavour.  The fruit, about the size of a pin's head, are small, oblong and aromatic.  The best quality anise comes from Spain and Turkey, with Steenbergs usually coming from Turkey.


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 fruit heads and drying these in a warm, ventilated area with some direct sunlight; when dry, the heads are rubbed to separate the fruit from the flowers and then sieved. Aniseed spice consists of the fruit  which contains two tiny seeds (3mm long).  These seeds have a mild, sweet licquorice flavour that does not linger.


Steenbergs Organic Ground Aniseed is a sweet spice that complements sweet baked goods really well, so is used in biscuits and cakes in Germany and Italy.  Curiously, anise seems to be very popular with pheasants as we have had a number of enquiries over the years by gamekeepers who add it to their feeds, as well as some fishermen who incorporate it into bait for match fishing.


For more detailed information, you could take a look at Ingredientia or Wikipedia.


Steenbergs Organic Aniseed Powder is part of Steenbergs core range of over 150 organic spices, peppers, herbs and flavoured sugars and available in many of Steenbergs retail stockists.  For further details or to become a stockist, please call 01765 640 088 or email enquiries@steenbergs.co.uk.
