Licorice root

Most people think of thick, black, chewy, sweet straps when they think of licorice, but it is in fact a shrub native to southern Europe and Asia.

The root contains a substance called glycyrrhizin that is 50 times sweeter than ordinary sugar.

Liqorice is mainly grown to flavour tobacco, but it is also sold as a herb tea.

It has been used to treat many health conditions and is the main ingredient in many cough medicines today.

Used frequently in Asian stocks.

Dried, chopped or powdered licorice root should be stored in airtight containers away from heat and light, and should last for at least 2 years.

Tips & Tricks: 

Use chopped licorice root along with star anise in Chinese pork and duck marinades.

The talcum-fine powder can be used to flavour cream and ice cream.

A serve of licorice is about two 5cm pieces.
