ACTIVE: 20 min TOTAL: 20 min
TO MAKE AHEAD: Refrigerate for up to 3 days.
EQUIPMENT: Tea ball or cheesecloth, kitchen string The luxurious, licorice-like aroma of star anise gives this sauce from José Andrés its specialoccasion feel. Don’t think of it as just a companion for turkey—it’ll dress up a humble sandwich and makes an outstanding topping for a wheel of Brie. (Photo: page 71.)
