Feature Plant Friday: Anise otherwise known as Aniseed

With records of its first use dating back to 1550 BC in the famous Ebers Papyrus, anise, commonly called aniseed, has had a long history of medicinal and culinary use across cultures. Although it is often confused with star anise and tastes similar to star anise, liquorice, and camphor, they are all completely unrelated!
