Licorice root plant is an herbaceous perennial of the legume family that is native to Asia and southern Europe.  The licorice roots are brown, straight and wrinkled, with yellow inside and has a bitter-sweet, sharp, anise-like and earthy flavour. Licorice root cuts have a sweet, warm and somewhat medicinal aroma.

Licorice is used in Moroccan and Asian cuisines and is most commonly known for its inclusion along with sugar, water, gum, flour and in licorice confectionary. Licorice root is used in Chinese cooking along with Star Anise, Szechuan Pepper and Ginger, in pork and duck recipes. Chopped Licorice root may be added sparingly to sweeten compotes of fruit, rhubarb stew, tart plums, apples, other fruit and baked goods. Licorice also works well with savoury dishes like seafood, specially octopus. Licorice powder is used to flavour creams and ice creams. Licorice is also in Irish Guinness and Italian Sambuca.

Licorice tea has become very popular recently. Licorice Root Cuts can be used to infuse the Licorice flavor and nutrients in a warm beverage and consumed as a tea. Other herbs and spices such as Fennel, Cinnamon, Cloves, etc. can be added to the beverage. Licorice tea can be effective to aid sleeping but the dose required can vary.

Licorice in high dose should not be used for a prolonged period. It is not recommended for use under pregnancy. It is known to increase blood pressure and affects some other medical conditions. We recommend that you seek the advice of a medical practitioner to understand if Licorice is safe for your individual circumstances.

Licorice pairs well with Cloves, Coriander seeds, Fennel, Ginger and Star Anise.
