Anise

Additional Links

Some think the Pimpinella anisum, others more probably the dill, Anethrum graveolens, of the order Umbelliferae; the seeds used in medicine as carminatives, in cookery as condiments, like caraway seed. "Anise" is from the Greek not conquerable (aniketon ) in its healing power; "dill" from the Norse, the soothing herb. The seeds, the leaves, and the stem of dill are (says Rabbi Eliezer) subject to tithe (Matthew 23:23).
