Whole Anise Seed (not to be confused with star anise or fennel seed) has a light, licorice-like taste to a wide range of foods. Both whole anise seeds and ground anise seeds are common in baked goods and savory dishes.
Go for the whole seeds when you’re looking for extra texture. You can also mix in the seeds, raw or toasted, into ground meat when making sausage, as a flavoring in pickle brine, or even if you want to spice up meatballs or burger patties.
Anise seed is perhaps best known for flavoring desserts. Italian biscotti probably comes to mind immediately, but anise seed can also flavor other cookies, like German pfeffernüsse, pie dough, pie filling, etc.
