Anise, badian (star anise), fennel, coriander (cilantro) are used worldwide, from India to Mexico, as spices and to season food dishes, salads, and candies. Anise flavors alcoholic beverages including Italian sambuca, French absinthe, and Greek ouzo. Perhaps Prometheus was fortified with a Titanic kantharos of ouzo when he used a stalk of fennel to steal fire from Zeus and the gods.
