Licorice Root cut/sifted

Licorice Root is a far cry from the overly sweetened chewy black artificially flavored licorice candy your grandfather was fond of.

Real Licorice Root has a sophisticated and distinct sweet spiced flavor similar but superior to anise, fennel, juniper, and ginger. The root itself is typically hard and woody and unpalatable but the flavors are ideal when drawn out in a liquid infusion. This is a cut dried licorice root ready for easy use. It has a versatile flavor that enhances any savory meal or sweet dessert it is added to. It is complimented by ginger, juniper, vanilla, salt, raspberry, and other bold flavors.

Licorice is commonly used in Asian meat dishes, confectionary, and Italian baked goods. Infuse it in tea, marinades, syrups, and sauces. Even rich porter beers can benefit from a little licorice root!

Like vanilla pods, the longer licorice root is allowed to steep the more intense the licorice flavor will be achieved. Simmer the root in water, creamy liquids, or oil to extract flavors, and then remove the root before using. However, unlike vanilla pods that can be reused many times, licorice root should be used once to for flavor and then discarded. Licorice can be used to flavor both sugar and salt cures as flavored dry ingredient (alongside powdered licorice) to use easily in cooking.
