Star anise is the fruit from an evergreen tree native to southern China. Each perfect star typically has 8 points, with one shiny seed per point. In fact, the Chinese believe that any star found with more than 8 points is very good luck, much like 4-leaf clovers. Star anise has a sweet and licorice-like flavor and is traditionally used in savory recipes.
