One of the most interesting-looking spices, Star Anise, also called Chakri phool, Chinese anise, and star aniseed. They mostly have eight points, and the Cantonese name for this spice “baht gokh” translates to mean “eight points.” These points may also be referred to as arms, carpals, or petals. Those with eight or more arms are considered to be good luck, but they can have anywhere from 5 to 12 arms, just depending on genetics.
UNIQUE FLAVOR - It is a unique spice that has a sweet anise flavor. Try adding whole pods to soups or stews that are made with beef or chicken, like this Pho with beef and noodles, or this chicken soup with shiitake mushrooms, form to flavor teas, marinades, soups, broths, and other liquids.
JUST WHAT YOU NEED - Even they would probably be a lovely addition to potpourri, they have much more to offer than just their looks. Naturally grown, free of chemicals and additives, then skillfully handpicked, air-dried, and carefully packed to preserve its maximum freshness.
