Licorice Root, c/s, Organic
Licorice is a perennial plant in the bean family found in certain parts of Europe and Asia. The plant grows on a spreading root system that consists of fibrous, wood-like parts that branch out horizontally under the ground. The root, sometimes referred to as sweet root, yields a sweetness many times more potent than that of ordinary sugar.
This characteristic is why licorice root is used in making various confections, including the popular rope-like sweet treat. Licorice root is also used to make lozenges, syrups and teas.
