Licorice / Liquorice

Licorice – The roots of several species of the genus Glycyrrhiza, perennial shrubs native to Europe and Asia, are used to flavour baked goods, candies, liqueurs, and soft drinks. They may be eaten (chewed, actually) raw, but are most often sold in dried and powdered form. The plants are easily grown from seed or root cuttings, and the roots may be harvested in the fall and will take several months to dry. The majority of the world harvest is used to flavour tobacco, and cough syrups and other medications rely on its powerful flavour to mask medicinal tastes
