Licorice Root 1 oz
Do not confuse the flavor of licorice to that of anise, when tasted side by side, they are quite different. Licorice has been used for everything from cough remedies to ulcer cures. The root imparts a very characteristic flavor and is surprisingly sweet. It contains glycyrrhizin, a substance 50 times sweeter than sugar, and sometimes added to chocolate to enhance sweetness.
