Am I the only one who is confused as hell by the fact that liquorice grows from the ground??? Do zours also grow from the ground? how about sour sticks?
I always thought it was the flavoring that came from a plant, not the actual stick of licorice. But I was never a big fan. Especially after my classmates in elementary school started telling me that it's mezonos.
You are correct. I think it is the root that gives off the flavor. But I think these plants can produce pretty cool flowers either way.I heard about the bracha being mezonos also. I remember learning about this as well, but I don't remember what was agreed upon. I still make a shehakol.
