I have an herbal book which seems to distinguish anise FROM licorice. I'll go and check fennel too. I recently bought some "star anise" from the market -- I like the shape, AND! -- it smells lov-er-ly (a natural potpourri if you will) Ahhhh! -- licoricey, spicey smelling little stars. Find some and appease your senses!

I've been after some anise seeds for ages now, I've only found one place I can get them - they've been on my Christmas list for an age.
But yes, liquorice and aniseed are different. You can tell best when you get them in their natural form - the smells illustrate (can smells illustrate? Yes...I suppose so, smells are our most powerful memory triggers) it best. The flavourings of things get it confused...I like them both.
At this junction, I don't want Wash to tell the story he will tell eventually in this section. Oh, and Wash? Our outgoing calls have been stopped or I would've called you this week. When they get back I'll give you a buzz. We didn't pay our bill. Laziness.
