Anise Star (China Star)

The star shaped fruit of an evergreen shrub indigenous to southern China and Vietnam.

Both the fruit case and the seeds have a strong aniseed flavour and may be used whole (remove before serving), or ground as in traditional Five Spice Mix. Use sparingly wherever an aniseed flavour is required.

It should not be confused with Japanese Star which has a much less pronounced aroma and can harbour lethal mycotoxins.
