Soft liquorice candy with Amarelli liquorice, aniseed, vanilla and balsamite or costmary, an herb traditionally used by the Officina. Liquorice (Glycyrrhiza glaba) is a leguminous plant typical of the Ionic coastal area of Calabria. The juice extracted from the liquorice root has been known since ancient times for its therapeutic properties. As far back as 1500 the Amarelli family from Rossano Calabro sold liquorice root that grew spontaneously on their land. It was the Amarellis who founded the “concio” or facility for the extraction of the juice which was then cooked and reduced to a shiny and very aromatic black paste.
