Anise, also known as aniseed, is the quintessential ingredient in the Italian pizelle, and is characterized by its sharp-sweet, warm flavor, similar to black licorice. Like its close relative fennel, anise is prized for its aroma and is believed to aid digestion. It is most often used in baking, but also pairs very well with fruits, cheese, shellfish, and tomato, particularly in pasta or barbecue sauce. It is used throughout north Africa and the Middle East in breads and stews.
