When I was little I always drank peppermint tea with chinese licorice pieces in it. They were cut into slices and dried(looked like little slices of wood). That's what I would do with them.

Black Licorice


2 c. cane sugar
1 1/2 c. corn syrup
1 c. sweetened -condensed milk milk
1 c. butter
dash of salt
1 Tbsp. anise oil or about 2 to 3 Tbsp. anise extract

Cook at 232 degrees. Stir constantly. Do not wash sides of pan down. Pour into greased 9 x 13-inch pan. Cool in refrigerator. Cut into bite size pieces and wrap in waxed paper.




Black Licorice II


1 cup (1/4 liter) granulated sugar
1/4 cup (50 ml) brown sugar
1/4 cup (50 ml) water
1/4 cup (50 ml) light corn syrup
1 tbsp (15 ml) black food colouring
1/4 tsp (1 ml) anise extract or pulverized anise seeds

Put the sugars, water and corn syrup into a pot, set the pot over medium heat and stir. When the batch has boiled for the first time, wash the sugar crystals down from the sides of the pot. Put the thermometer in the pot and cook without stirring to 290F (143C) [soft crack stage]. Take the pot from the heat and add the food colouring and the anise flavouring and stir them in gently.

With a teaspoon, drop round patties about the size of quarters onto a greased baking sheet. If the candy in the pot gets too firm for spooning, reheat it gently until it softens. Cool the drops completely but not in the refrigerator or the pieces will stick. Wrap the drops individually in wax paper or cellophane.

Yeah, it's true, the licorice that one eats is made with anise. Real licorice, a plant which I also have growing, is pretty much good for tea and herbal remedies. Licorice, I believe is a facilitator or enhancer of other herbs which is why it is in so many herbals. My licorice grows next to a valerian, ashwagandha, and caapi vine. How old are your plants?

...or something
