“Pimpinelle” is the nickname for aniseed in French, isn’t it adorable? We also love its unique instantly recognisable taste! Whether used in savoury or sweet dishes or even as an infusion, aniseed will become your new best friend in the kitchen. Our handy formula makes it easy to use, whatever your recipe you’re making.
Aniseed is prized by many cooks for its ability to give a unique twist to their recipes. As soon as its delicate fragrance and aroma fills the kitchen, you’ll start working up an appetite!
You can also use aniseed directly in a salad dressing. But its use in sweet recipes really won over our team. In the summer months, cut up sweet melon and make a syrup with water, sugar, mint, star anise and aniseed. This subtly flavoured mixture could well make your family think you’re a secretly trained pro chef!
