can i sub anise seed for the fennel seed in Sagegreen's latkes?? I know it's here in the dark recesses of my spice cabinet, but Lord know's where I put it. Or should I just skip the spice altogether and move on? My grated roots are waiting...
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
I hope and trust Sagegreen will weigh in. I can feel for anise seed, and also cardamom. Post results, please.
okay, I went with celery seed, which has a much subtler flavor than the very licorice-y anise seed. Smells fantastic so far. Will let you know!
Now you made me want celery seed latkes.
They taste really great!
I am pretty sure celery seed would be great in them and it looks like you already answered that question. I would have gone for some pernod.
for serious thirschfeld?? Because you know I happen to have a bottle of Pernod. And rum.
Or any other licorice flavored alcohol, fo sho.
Maybe 1/2 tsp.
