What would you do with this sauce?

I make a very simple anise-flavored syrup (2 c. sugar, 1 c. water, 1 t. anise flavoring. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 to 10 minutes, or until slightly thickened). I love it on vanilla ice cream, but can't think of what else it would be good on. What else could I do with it?

Gayle,
how about some sliced pound cake surrounded by fresh sliced peaches and then spoon some of the syrup over the cake and peaches and top with whipped cream or even just plain.

sounds like it might go well on grilled pork, veal, or even lamb chops.

or mix it with apple cider or red wine vinegar, evoo, add some mashed garlic, and use it as a dressing over a salad of arrugula, endive, and radicchio, maybe with some goat cheese.

What if you coated some pecans with it when it was still warm?

YES! You've mentioned some of the more bitter greens/salad and that sounds wonderful!!! I love this idea!

brush it over a baked cake before you frost it. It will infuse your cake with a great flavor and keep it very moist.

Add some fresh, slightly underripe pineapple and a little hot pepper and serve it over grilled fish or shrimps!

Wow, thanks for all the ideas everyone! I think I'm going to have to make another batch of syrup and try these out. It never occurred to me to use it in a main dish or salad.
