Culinary Notes:

Aniseed Myrtle is a rainforest tree growing in some areas of North Eastern NSW Australia. The leaves are crushed releasing an aniseed (or licorice) aroma. The flavored leaves are often used for flavoring desserts, sweet sauces, and preserves. It also is popular as a scented savoury sauce or marinade for meats and sets a deep fragrant flavour to salad dressings. Use in sweet and savory dishes for an aromatic licorice flavor.

Health benefits:

Traditionally used for weight loss, lactation and stomach complaints. Aniseed Myrtle is also high in anethole (among a host of other benefits!), which is a compound known to treat conditions such as acid reflux, intestinal cramps, colic, flatulence, and anorexia. All our herbs and spices are preservative-free, additive-free, filler-free and contain low or zero salt. The intense flavour from our spice blends means a little goes a long way.

Ingredients:

100% dried Australian native Aniseed Myrtle leaves.

How to use:

  • Can be used in marinades and rubs for meat and vegetarian dishes, seafood, raw food dishes, salads, soups, pasta, stews and salad dressings or just as you would any other herb or spice
  • Add to jams, pizza, syrups, pickles, sweets, butter, cakes, sauces and ice creams
  • Makes a refreshing tea when brewed
