Les Anis De Flavigny

Les Anis De Flavigny
Anise of Flavigny is a candy from Flavigny-sur-Ozerain in Burgundy.

Anise candies were first made by the Benedictine monks of the abbey of Flavigny (founded in 719), as reported by the Roman traveller Flavius.

Each candy is made in a dragee process starting with a single anise seed: Over a period of 15 days it is covered with successive coats of flavored sugar syrup. The finished candy is always called "Anis" by its makers, even when the flavor is one of violet, rose, mint, jasmine, liquorice, or orange instead of anise.
