Chasin' down a Hoodoo...


« on: May 29, 2011, 08:13:35 PM »

There doesn't seem to be very many of us out there which means that there's more for those of us who do.   Smiley  Now, I'm talking about REAL liquorice that comes from the liquorice root and is traditionally black in color (the red stuff ain't liquorice, y'all!). I will also accept the artificial flavor of fennel. Whether it's soft chews or the candy coated pastels, I love liquorice!  Any one else share this affinity?

 It has a little salt in it, yes.  They also offer "Double Salt Licorice".  I tried some yesterday about dehydrated on the spot.  It was like licking a block of salt...disgusting.

My Mom's crazy about licorice. I like fruit flavors, so whenever I get a bag of jelly beans, I save the licorice-flavor ones for her.  Smiley

Can't stand licorice candy, but I LOVE the taste of tea that has licorice root in the ingredients! It's absolutely wonderful for digestion, and it tastes great, too.

The salty licorice sounds amazing, and that's probably because I would lick a block of salt, happily. Blame it on my adrenal glands.

Ugh, absinthe is horrid! My husband can put that stuff away, but I can't stand it. Much too strong (but then again, I'm not a big fan of hard liquor in general, especially straight...).

^^Tallitot, that type of licorice is also really good, but my all-time favorite is Panda brand.

I like licorice when it's mixed with other stuff, like in those allsorts things that Brits eat. Good n' Plenty is nasty and always got a resentful look from me when I found it in my Halloween stash.

Yes. I mean, the way I've had it was the traditional way with the sugar cube and the water added to it (not straight), but I thought it was really good.

No, I believe that is called the Czech method. I am not sure if there is a name for the method I did, but I believe it is the traditional one. You pour the absinthe into the glass, lay the spoon on top of the glass with the sugar cube on top of the spoon, then slowly pour water over the sugar cube. The absinthe then begins to go from translucent green to an opaque white color.

Absinthe La Louche is the name you are looking for. That is typically the way I prepare my mine (when not in a cocktail of some form), though I admit I have never tried the Czech method.

I like Red Vines Black Licorice Twists (Molasses, Wheat Flour, Corn Syrup, Caramel Coloring, Licorice Extract, Salt, Anise Flavor). I use to buy the four pound jar, but now I can not even find a 1 pound bag.  The store shelves have been taken over by the raspberry red menace. Fortunately, Ouzo and Italian sausage do not come in a raspberry red variety....yet.

There doesn't seem to be very many of us out there which means that there's more for those of us who do.   Smiley  Now, I'm talking about REAL liquorice that comes from the liquorice root and is traditionally black in color (the red stuff ain't liquorice, y'all!). I will also accept the artificial flavor of fennel. Whether it's soft chews or the candy coated pastels, I love liquorice!  Any one else share this affinity?

 I think you're on to something.  Not long ago, I ate some black licorice and then took a drink of Coke and it tasted just like a root beer.  I guess licorice or anise is the "root".
