anise extract

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I once worked with a pastry cook whose father was a chemist for a food company. Her family recipe for biscotti had anise extract, and it was great. I was wondering, 1) Does anybody know where I can get it?
2) What would be the conversion for ground anise seed?
Thanks in advance

Try any baking purveyer or restaurant purveyer. Also look up Virginia Dare, they have a dot com and extensive list of extracts.
for each teaspoon of extract, use a tablespoon of ground spice.

I use a formula with three tablespoons of anise seed.

I would think you could experiment with making your own extract. Anise is very aromatic and would be easy to do.

You can steep star anise in oil or make a simple syrup with it.

Steep anise in vodka for a few months, voila.
You can also add sugar syrup to the above and make anisette.
