Anise

Other names: sweet anise, fennel

Also known as Sweet Anise or Fennel. Has a sweet, mild licorice flavor. Popular European vegetable, especially in Italy and France. Not to be confused with herb anise, which is grown for its seeds and sold as a seasoning. The feathery fronds can be used as an herb, like dillweed, to flavor soups and stews. The broad bulbous base is treated like a vegetable.
