So if you want the real thing for your spice cabinet, then this anise is the one you need. Very popular in confectioneries, such as black jelly beans, aniseed balls (in Britian, it is very popular), Italian pizzelle, Austrian Anisebögen, New Mexican Bizcochitos..the list goes on. In India, its seed is commonly eaten after a meal as a digestive aid. It is used in a lot of liqours around teh world such as flavor Middle Eastern arak, Mexican Xtabentún, Colombian aguardiente, French spirits absinthe, Greek ouzo, Dutch Brokmöpke, German Jägermeister, Italian sambuca, Peruvian anís, and Turkish raki.
