This seed is not to be confused with Star Anise, Aniseed is an entirely different spice found in the Mediterranean and is one of the most popular spices in cooking today because of it's unbeatable sweet and fresh taste. Regency Aniseed from Turkey imparts a beautiful liquorice, cardamom and honey flavour. It's highly aromatic, and very convenient to use, just like any other seed. Many times in industry, it's also diluted with Carom Seeds, a seed which looks very similar, but has an entirely different flavour. Also known as: anise, saunf, sombu, badishop, variyali.
