Have you ever noticed how many common spices, herbs, and even veggies there are that have the same licorice-y anise flavor as, well…anise? This came up in conversation at a dinner party recently and we couldn’t believe how many there were once we started thinking about it!

Here’s what what we came up with:

1. Anise (of course!)
2. Star Anise
3. Fennel – bulb, fronds, and seed
4. Basil
5. Chervil
6. Caraway
7. Tarragon

Can you think of any others?
