    can you?
    If you simmered them or something the first time no, the flavouring is removed before. Also happens if you leave them for like 2 years, apparently.

    Er, that's probably why. Star anise isn't super cheap, if you're on a budget.

    Granted I don't know if reusing it makes it taste any worse, it's not normally done.

    It sounds like a terrible culinary decision. If I can't afford to make something, I just don't make it?

    Tbh you might as well just try and see if it does anything next time I guess! Put it in the fridge if you do though, I *think* that's what I read people were doing...
