Anise Extract Q&A

What is anise extract?

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

What are some uses of anise extract?

Anise extract is commonly used in biscotti and pfefferneusse cookies, classic French pain d'epices, and Italian pizelle. It's also great with savory recipes 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 substituted with ground star anise, any licorice flavoring, and anise flavored liqueurs.

Are there any other names for Anise Extract?

Aniseed Extract

Does anise extract go bad?

If stored correctly and with a secure cap, anise extract can last for a year or more – with as much anise flavor as the day it was purchased.
