Jeanette makes a healthy “black licorice”

My kids asked me, “What is that kid eating?” I told them it was licorice, and then I went home and created it for them.  This is what I came up with and it is SO GOOD! You’ll never want that other stuff that we all grew up eating.

Jeanette’s Licorice

10 very ripe persimmons

10 to 20 anise seeds or several inches of fresh leaves cut

Blend in BlendTec or Vitamix until smooth. Pour a thick layer onto dehydrator teflex sheet and dry overnight or until done at 105 degrees.

Cut in 1-inch thick slices and enjoy like licorice.

Thanks Jeanette!
