Making this old-fashioned anise candy has become an annual Christmas project for me since I first prepared this recipe at the home of a friend who made candy for a shop. To vary the recipe a little, you can substitute peppermint extract for the anise and green food coloring for red.—Jobyna Carpenter, Poulsbo, Washington
