FAQs about anise bulb

To make the vegetable easier to handle, begin by trimming off the stalks and fronds. You can save the stalks to use in vegetable stock, and the fronds can be chopped up and added to a salad. Proceed to cut the bulb in half and cut the halves into quarters. Peel off and discard or compost any wilted outer layers. Chop off the rough root bottom. Slice the anise bulb crosswise in small or large sections, depending on the details of the recipe. For salads, many prefer thin slices that mix well into the bowl. For cooking, thicker is considered best to keep the smooth texture of the anise bulb intact. 

Anise bulb is a highly nutritious vegetable that offers anti-inflammatory benefits for many whether consumed raw or cooked. When added to your diet, it can be an excellent source of vitamin C, fiber, potassium, calcium, and sodium. It also has small amounts of iron, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin K. Because one cup of anise bulb contains roughly 20 percent of the daily requirement of vitamin C, it can help your immune system, help repair skin tissue, build collagen, and protect blood vessels. 

Anise bulb and star anise are often confused because of their similar flavor profiles. They are two different plants. Star anise comes from an annual plant, and anise bulb is a perennial. Star anise is a seed that comes from a bush, specifically grown for the seed. No other part of the bush is edible, while you can eat the entire plant of the anise bulb raw. Star anise is best used as an aromatic to flavor cooked dishes because of its wood-like texture. Star anise can also be ground, which makes it a good addition to baked goods such as biscotti or pies. Star anise is more pungent, and anise bulb has a mild flavor that is less sweet.
