The licorice flavor of the anise is different and good in this recipe. I leave skins on potatoes when making potato salad. I will be making this again, and maybe increasing the anise seed to 1 tsp.!
I love anything anise! Thanks for the recipe Domenica. I buy so many cookbooks and have so many appliances but I always go right back to my gramma's recipes.....a pinch, a handful, a bunch of....no measuring cups or spoons! Maybe one day soon I'll chuck it all and enjoy the simple pleasures & treasures of a lost art....gramma's cooking!!
Very nice flavor! My boyfriend liked it alot!
