Liquorice sticks are woody roots with intense anise and fennel notes. To test the flavours before incorporating the liquorice into a dish, chew the end of the stick – though beware, taste is far stronger than the aroma.
In the Middle East, liquorice is boiled into a drink called Erk-Soos, which is believed to have medical properties. Once the liquorice flavours are infused into a liquid, it can easily be turned into a syrup which can be used to flavour fruit or ice cream. The anise flavours also add interest to beef stews, stock and curries.
