Review This Recipe
Delicious and a MONEY SAVER
I tried this on a whim. We loved it - guests asked for seconds and wanted the recipe. My family likes the taste anise seed adds to
food (I've only used it with meats and vegetables). I was delighted to find another use for a favorite herb. I used the dark brown
sugar and found it worked quite well. Interesting taste change. We'll be making this again!!
