Whole Aniseed Aniseeds are the dried seeds of a flowering plant in the Apiaceae family, native to the Mediterranean and southwest Asian area. Its flavor is similar to those of star anise, fennel, or licorice. It is used in teas, spice blends, and sweet or savory cooking recipes.
Its invention has been popularly incorrectly attributed to Henry David Thoreau in Concord, Massachusetts lore, as there have been published recipes for bread with raisins since 1671. Since the 15th century, bread made with raisins was made in Europe. In Germany, stollen was a Christmas bread. Kulich was an Easter bread made in Russia and panettone was made in Italy. The earliest citation for “raisin bread” in the Oxford English Dictionary is dated to an 1845 article in Blackwood’s Edinburgh Magazine. In England, raisin bread became a common element of high tea in the second half of the 19th century. In the 1920s, raisin bread was advertised as “The Bread Of Iron”, due to the high iron content of the raisins. The bread became increasingly popular among English bakers in the 1960s.
