Licorice is currently being used in the research and treatment of hepatitis and HIV.
Licorice has roots in two Greek words meaning "sweet" plus "root." The Greek glykys, meaning "sweet".
I am in a very 'happy, happy, joy, joy" mood since I am getting my beloved licorice Altoids back in stock tomorrow! I cannot wait to rip the plastic off of a tin and sniff in that wonderful liquorice Altoid smell. sigh.
