Our anise oil is 100% pure and of the highest quality. A little goes a long way! Anise has a flavor that is similar to fennel, licorice-like, but a little sweeter. Anise oil is great for baking and critical to making pfefferneusse cookies, classic French pain d'epice and Italian pizelles. Besides sweet applications, anise oil is also widely used in processed meats and is an important flavoring ingredient in pepperoni.
This oil is highly concentrated and should be used very sparingly. We also recommend that gloves and eye protection be used when handling anise oil or any other essential oils. Anise oil solidifies, or freezes at 59 degrees F. Do not be alarmed, this is actually a normal occurrence. If the oil has crystallized, warm it until it is liquefied and shake.
This sweet oil has a taste and aroma similar to licoricy fennel and pairs well with allspice, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Add to biscotti, pfeffernusse cookies, classic French Pain d'Epice, and Italian pizzelles. Use gloves when working with essential oils. If the oil has crystallized, warm until liquified and shake.
