• I love all things liquorice or aniseed and Anise myrtle is just that in Australian native herb form

    Known lovingly as Aniseed myrtle, this dried and milled leaf is a fantastic addition to any dish requiring an aniseed flavour.  Use instead of Star Anise or even Pernod. The flavour diminishes if you cook too long, so like with many herbs add to your dish at the end of the cooking, this Australian native dried leaf won't disappoint. A great addition to a salad, Thai style food or seafood.  If you love "all things" aniseed, which I do, Anise myrtle is a great one to have in your kitchen pantry Remember, as with all herbs and spices, whilst they look fantastic on show in the kitchen, the best place to store it is in a dry, dark, cool space.
  • Aniseed Myrtle is a great Australian bushfood substitute for Star Anise or Pernod, but remember, as like many herbs,  to use the Aniseed Myrtle towards the end of your cooking otherwise the flavour will disappear...it has a soft Aniseed flavour and great health benefits, so definately a great bush herb for your kitchen pantry.
