Jeanette Makes a Healthy “Black Licorice”
GreenSmoothieGirl reader Jeanette shared this experience and a recipe to go with it.
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.
- 10 very ripe persimmons
- 10-20 anise seeds or several inches of fresh leaves cut
- Blend ingredients in a blender 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.
