About Anise extract Edit

Preparing Anise extract Edit


For anise extract, fill a ½ pint canning jar with whole star anise.

(You can find star anise in a Chinese grocery store)

Fill with vodka, leave indefinitely.

Star anise also stores well in sugar to make anise flavored sugar. (An interesting side note: Star anise are the star shaped seed pods from the fruit of a Chinese evergreen tree which provides a key ingredient used in the production of Tamiflu, an antiviral agent purportedly effective in helping to fight H5N1 bird flu and other influenza).
