I am making Gabrielle Hamilton's braised dandelion greens, and need something mastica-like to give it that piney Greek flavor
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
If mastica has an anise-like flavor, you can use Pernod. Or maybe even Anisette or Sambuca, maybe? Or what about crushing up some juniper berries - they are also pine-y flavored.
