Anijsmelk

Anijsmelk is one of my favorite Dutch treats.  This traditional recipe is perfect for warming your soul on a cold winter’s night.  In Holland, dropping Anijsblokjes (anise-flavored sugar cubes, made by De Ruijter and others) into warm milk is now the more common method for making anijsmelk.  

1 qt milk
5-10 whole star anise
sugar to taste

In a sauce pan, warm milk with star anise; add sugar to taste.  When anijsmelk reaches the desired strength of anise flavor, remove star anise pods.  Serve hot in a teacup or mug.
