I love liquorice but it's bad for your heart :( Bummer!
It's supposed to be good for increasing cortisol availability in Addison's disease, though.

If you have any recipes, I would appreciate them.
Chocolate is used in Mexican recipes - meat dishes (eg turkey) with "mole" sauce, for example. I've also got an Italian (I think) recipe for hare cooked in a sauce containing chocolate. Unfortunately the recipe is still in storage while the new house is sorted out.
