Star Anise

Star anise is a spice used in Chinese, Indian, and Vietnamese cooking. The star anise is the fruit of the Illicium verum, a fir tree native to southwestern China. In the seven-pointed star anise shown in this photogram, you can see the fruit seeds nestling in a couple of the spokes of the star.

I give you this bright star anise by way of saying, “Have a happy, colorful, and tasty New Year!”
