I am trying to find what anis is called in English
Bienvenida al foro. Depende si es la planta, el licor, o el grano. Se puede buscarlo en el diccionario aquí - Anís
- The flavour would be known by the English as Aniseed
The picture is of the spice Star anise or estrella de anis in Spain. Ith is a very pungent spice that smells and tastes of aniseed but has no relationship to it except that it contains the same volatile oil anethole.
