Licorice, licorice, we hear both versions, let's take a moment to explain the difference. In a general way, we use the feminine to talk about the tree and the masculine to talk about the products derived from it, especially the candies. Licorice, therefore, is a plant that bears the scientific name of Glycyrrhiza glabra, "glucus" meaning sweet or sugary in Greek and "rhidza" root. Like many spices and herbs, licorice has been used since antiquity, the Greeks and Romans were very fond of it. It was used to quench thirst, which was very practical during the military campaigns of the time. It is also in China and Egypt that licorice was consumed, it was attributed medicinal properties. It was not until the 18th century that an English pharmacist, George Dunhill, discovered the gustatory properties of licorice. He simply added sugar to it and thus made the first licorice confectionery, the beginning of a great love story with consumers. It is only a century later that French confectioners decide to use licorice, the famous Zan brand is registered in 1884. A century later, Ricqlès-Zan merged with Haribo, known for its famous Rotellas and Car en Sac. Here, I offer you licorice in its pure form, the licorice stick that comes from Turkey.
Licorice offers a particular flavor, there are rarely half measures with it, we love it or hate it. The licorice stick brings freshness and aniseed notes both sweet and bitter.
Licorice is mainly cultivated in Mediterranean countries. Here, this plant finds a favorable climate between heat and humidity. The licorice stick, or licorice wood, is none other than the root of this plant. One uses in general the secondary plants without touching the principal plants. It is a game of patience, it is necessary to wait 4 years after the plantation before being able to obtain this stick. When the plant dies, in autumn, one collects the stick of licorice which will be then dried to be consumed as we know it. However, it can also be eaten fresh.
First of all, the licorice stick can be consumed alone by chewing it. Beyond the gustatory pleasure it brings, it has been recognized for many years to accompany smokers in withdrawal. But there are many other ways to enjoy the inimitable taste of your licorice stick, throughout the meal and, of course, in infusion.
This menu starts very well with this exceptional product that is the scallop and in a very surprising way. Fry the scallops in butter and olive oil and sauté fennel and carrots, sprinkled with grated licorice.
Who has never tasted a delicious veal sauté? It's one of the traditional French dishes, and it's a pure delight. But what if you added a little exoticism to it? I suggest you simply slip some licorice powder, obtained by grinding your licorice stick, into your creamy sauce.
The crème brulée is a dessert that melts in the mouth and brings a gustatory pleasure that we never tire of. This time, I suggest you add a little licorice. Infuse a stick of licorice when you cook your milk and your dessert will be revolutionized.
Much more than a pleasure food, the licorice stick is recognized for its various virtues.
Licorice sticks should preferably be kept away from humidity and light.

Même en infusion, ne donne aucune saveur particulère.
Comment from David Vanille the 12/12/2022
Le numéro de lot est le même que nos autres clients. Nous venons de vérifier avec l'équipe et trouvons que cette réglisse est meilleure que nos échantillons d'Italie.
N'hésitez pas à nous envoyer un échantillon d'une réglisse que vous trouvez meilleure, nous demandons à voir svp.
