So, what is liquorice?

Liquorice is a distinctively flavored herb that has been used for centuries in both medicinal and culinary contexts. It is characterized by its woody, sweet, and slightly bitter taste, which comes from the glycyrrhizin compound found in its roots. Liquorice can be found in a variety of forms, including as a powder, extract, or in its raw root form. It is often used as a natural sweetener and flavor enhancer in desserts, candies, and teas. Liquorice is also known for its potential health benefits, which include anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties, making it a popular ingredient in traditional medicine.
