Anise Extract Q & A

What is anise extract?

This Anise Extract is made from combining alcohol, water and the finest quality pure anise oil. Alcohol is essential as it is used with water to extract solvents and to keep the essential oils from separating (as oil and water are prone to do). Anise oil is a natural essential oil derived from the perennial herbal plant anise (also known as aniseed).

What is anise extract good for?

This extract is commonly used in biscotti and pfefferneusse cookies, classic French pain d’epice, and Italian pizelle. Anise extract is also great in savory dishes like beef or lamb stew.

What does anise extract taste like?

Pure anise extract has the taste and aroma of sweet licorice but is more complex. Anise is similar to fennel in flavor but a little sweeter.

What can you use in place of anise extract?

Anise Extract can be substitued with ground star anise, any licorice flavoring, and anise flavored liqueurs.

Cooking With Anise Extract

Anise Extract is essential for pfeffernüsse. These spiced cookies are a German tradition and are also popular in U.S. Mennonite communities.
