Ever thought about growing your own licorice?
The licorice herb looks really cute with its fine but stiff dark green, dill-like leaves and its round shape.
It also has a unique licorice & anise taste which makes it a “sweetener” perfect for seasoning desserts and drinks. Even if it is not so famous, licorice herb has almost the same sweetener power as stevia.
Licorice can be also used in savory dishes – try it in fish dishes, as an ingredient in spice oil, or why not, use it to make pesto
