Description

Calabaza Star Anise [whole] 100gms

Star Anise is a star-shaped fruit belonging to a plant native to China called illicium verum, it is used mainly as a spice but it is also known to have numerous important health benefits.
Star anise is not related to the European anise plants but it has similar aniseed or licorice-like flavor. It can be used in cooking as a spice or drunk as a tea. It is important to note that you should only use the Chinese variety as there are concerns regarding the toxicity of Japanese star anise.

Star anise contains plenty of important minerals and vitamins including Vitamins A and C as well as small amounts of B vitamins. It also contains calcium and phosphorus but in terms of its medicinal value, perhaps its most important compound is shikimic acid.

It can be added to your meals as a spice or made into a tea if it's whole remove them before serving. You can make your own delicious five-spice powder by grinding your star anise and mixing it with the other 4 spices – cloves, fennel seeds, cinnamon, and Sichuan pepper.

A piece or two should be sufficient or you can use a pinch or two of powdered star anise instead.
