Liquorice Facts


Did you know that liquorice is the root of a plant called Glycyrrhiza glabra?  It is a herbaceous perennial legume native to parts of Asia, such as India, and southern Europe . It is not botanically related to anise, star anise, or fennel, which are sources of similar flavouring compounds (aniseed).

In many countries in Europe (including the Netherlands and the Scandinavian countries) strong tasting salted liquorice is a firm favourite.

In the Second World War (in times of rationing), liquorice root was used as a toothbrush.  In Italy, France and Spain it is still popular in it's natural form - the root being dug up, washed and dried.  It makes a good breath freshener in that format.

In Northern England (particularly Lancashire and Yorkshire) liquorice is frequently referred to as "Spanish", though the exact reason is uncertain.

The first place where liquorice mixed with sugar began to be used as a sweet was Pontefract in Yorkshire (where many liquorice sweets are still make today).  Hence the old favourite liquorice sweets: Pontefract Cakes.
