The reason I say this is because the food I grew up calling "finocchio" (Italian-Americans, represent :) ), I later discovered is called "fennel" in English. Fine, then, Fennel it is. Till I found something in the supermarket labeled as Anise. What on earth...? What the heck is that? Looks like finocchio to me. I, er "borrowed" the spindly little leaves sprouting off the end of one, and nibbled on them. The taste was what decided it for me. Same licorice-y (is that a word? I think I may have created a word) that I grew up with.

Which is why anisette, an alcoholic beverage that my grandmom used to love, tastes just like licorice, too. It's a little TOO much like licorice to suit me, in fact -- a little of that stuff goes a long way.

Fun fact. Make tea out of fennel seeds to tame a rebellious bowel. That tastes like licorice, too, but it doesn't knock you out of your seat like anisette.

So here's a brief writeup of fennel and anise. They are two different plants, as you said, but apparently they are frequently mixed up (with fennel being referred to as anise).

Well, that explains the "anise" sign in the produce section for something I darn well knew by another name. I guess the manager couldn't spell "finocchio". :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sorry. I didn't see your replies Like to Read. I was also thinking of star anise and I didn't want the reader to get confused.
Star anise has some amazing properties. A quote follows.
"Star anise is a powerful culinary and medicinal spice that has been used for thousands of years and is rich in vitamin C, calcium and iron. It contains potent anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties and is particularly good for treating the flu. In fact, star anise contains a compound called shikimic acid which is used to make the common anti-viral drug Tamiflu. Star anise is known to effectively remove mucus and congestion from the body due to its strong expectorant properties. It is also commonly used as a digestive aid and can help to relieve gas, constipation, cramping, bloating, heartburn, and indigestion. Star anise is highly beneficial in the treatment of asthma, bronchitis, rheumatism, back pain, shingles, herpes, halitosis, and sinus infections. It also has sedative properties and is helpful to take before bed to ensure a good night’s sleep. Star anise is known to support the health of the female reproductive system and is often used by lactating mothers to increase the flow of breast milk. Star anise has a flavor similar to that of licorice and cloves and is often used as a flavor enhancer to both sweet and savory meals including smoothies, deserts, soups, and stews. Star anise tea is a wonderful and healing medicinal beverage that can significantly boost the immune system and help ward off any viral or bacterial infection. Star anise oil can be found in creams and lotions as is an excellent topical remedy for insect bites, eczema, psoriasis, acne, scabies, and lice. Star anise can be found in whole, powder, capsule, tea, extract, oil, and cream form online or at your local health food and grocery store."

This is a very good post and reminder we as spirit keepers should value more our link with our spirits. Just an idea, but wouldn't it be better to pin it or like to put in the announcements of this section or of the "Beginner/Newbie Area"?

A new guy here.

Star anise is a great herb & the mere act of pray to it then inhale its essence boost my psychic power & ability. I see much psychic gain, vivid dream night after night. Even visitation by my bound or unbound demons.
All hail the star anise.
