Anise Oil is a pure, natural essential oil and is used as a flavoring as well as in aromatherapy.
Pure anise has a congealing (crystallization) point of 15ºC or 59ºF. If pure anise is exposed to temperatures below this point, the essential oil will solidify. If this happens, simply warm the anise oil until it is liquefied and shake.
A little goes a long way!
LorAnn’s super strength flavor (also known as candy oils or flavoring oils) are three to four times the strength of water or alcohol-based flavorings or “extracts”.
Anise has a pleasant licorice taste and is commonly used to flavor Italian biscotti and other European baked goods such as Springerle, and Pizzelle cookies. It is also a popular flavor in candy.
Use In: Hard candy, general candy making, cakes, cookies, frosting, ice cream and a wide variety of other baking and confectionery applications.
Note: When substituting these flavors for extracts, use ¼ to ½ teaspoon for 1 teaspoon of extract.
