      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    • Fill a half pint jar with whole star anise. Pour in vodka till it completely fills the jar.

    • Seal the jar and store it in a cool, dark place for three months or more, shaking the jar once a week. The longer you store the spice in the alcohol, the stronger the flavor your extract will have.

    • Once the extract has matured to your liking, strain the liquid into another bottle or jar to separate the star anise from the extract.

    • You could substitute the Start anise with Anise seeds and follow the same method to make an Anise seed tincture. Crush the anise seeds a bit and use any extracting solvent or alcohol.

    • If after three months of steeping, you feel that the extract is not strong enough, keep it for a couple of months more.
