Unusual Food Holidays in July

I’ll admit, there are a few foods above that I wasn’t familiar with. So I did the research for you and found out a little bit about each of the more unusual July Foods Holidays.

Anisette

Anisette is more commonly known as Anise. Anisette’s flavor tastes a lot like black licorice and is made from the seeds of an Anise plant.

It’s obviously not for everyone. But you never know until you try. A few things to know about Anisette:

  • It’s used to flavor Sambuca
  • Tastes and smells like licorice
  • Has anti-inflammatory and digestive properties

Grand Marnier

Grand Marnier is an orange liqueur in the curaçao tradition. It’s not the same as Cointreau. Unlike Grand Marnier, Cointreau is a triple sec (an orange-flavored liqueur that originated in France).

So what do you use Grand Marnier for? Cocktails of course! Below are a few delicious Grand Marnier cocktails to spruce up your July with.

Penuche Fudge

Penuche Fudge is a fudge-like candy. It’s typically made with brown sugar, butter, milk, and usually nuts. here are a few interesting facts about this not-so-well-known candy:

  • The name for Penuche fudge comes from Latin. the Latin word for panicle or panicula.
  • It’s tannish in color
  • Tastes similar to caramel

Scotch

So everyone knows scotch. But do you know the difference between scotch and whiskey? Here are a few key differences:

  • Whiskey (spelled whisky in Scotland and Canada) is made from wheat, rye, corn, or barley.
  • Scotch is whiskey made in Scotland. It’s typically made from barley or a mix of grains.
  • Finally, bourbon is a type of whiskey made in the United States. However, it has a much more rigid set of standards attached to it. Most of the bourbon (95%) is made in Kentucky.
