Aniseed Myrtle (Backhouse Anisata) is a stunning rainforest tree and is quite rare in the wild, native to a few areas of North East New South Wales. The tree can grow to 45 meters but only reaches 8-10 meters.  The tree has fine green foliage, and these leaves are dried and ground to produce a distinctive aniseed herb with a delightful aromatic finish.  Aniseed Myrtle can be used wherever a recipe calls for star anise. Sprinkle over cooked vegetables, or rub into all meats and seafood. Use when making savoury biscuits and bread. Aniseed Myrtle is intensely flavoured and should be used sparingly.

List of Australian herbs and spices – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Australian herbs and spices were used by Aboriginal peoples to flavour food in ground ovens. The term “spice” is applied to the non-leafy range of strongly flavoured dried Australian bush foods. They mainly consist of aromatic fruits and seed products although Australian wild peppers also have spicy leaves. There are also a small number of aromatic leaves but unlike culinary herbs from other cultures which often come from small soft-stemmed forbs, the Australian herb species are trees from rainforests, open forests, and woodlands.

Australian herbs and spices are dried and ground to produce a powdered or flaked spice, either used as a single ingredient or in blends.

They were used to a limited extent by colonists in the 18th and 19th centuries. Some extracts were used as flavouring during the 20th century. Australian native spices have become more widely recognised and used by non-indigenous people since the early 1980s as part of the bushfood industry, with increasing gourmet use and export.

They can also be used as a fresh product. Leaves can be used whole, like a bay leaf in cooking, or spicy fruits are added to various dishes for flavour.

The distilled essential oils from leaves and twigs are also used as flavouring products.
