Description

Terre Exotique’s star anise brings heady, aniseed flavours to stocks, marinades and mulled wine. Star anise comes from the eight-pointed pericarp of the fruit of the Illicium verum tree which grows in four provinces of China. It is harvested twice a year, then left to dry in the sun - all stages of production are done by hand. 

Ground star anise is a key ingredient in Chinese 5-spice mix, however you can also use it whole as a way to infuse flavour into broths, stocks and curries. Alternatively, pair star anise with plums, figs and pears to make spiced chutneys and fruit compotes.

This 500g bag is ideal for professional kitchens – the star anise comes in opaque packaging, protecting them from light and preserving the fresh flavour, while the flat base makes it easy to store.

About Terre Exotique

Terre Exotique works directly with hundreds of specialist farmers and producers around the world – to bring the very best peppers, spices and salts to our tables. The company was founded by Erwann de Kerros, a Breton and seasoned traveller. After tasting pepper in the Penja plantation in Cameroon, Kerros yearned to try other specialist peppers and spices – and Terre Exotique was born.

The company works closely with farmers to preserve natural habitats, and to ensure a sustainable income for local communities. Each spice is carefully packed in pouches – the opaque packaging preserves the flavours and aroma of your spice, by protecting them from sunlight. So the ingredients stay at their best for longer.
