Spiced Tropical Fruit Salad
Preheat oven to 300 F.
Crush star anise to start the flavour extraction process.
Place anise and lemon juice in a small pot and heat over medium low heat until juice is reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Strain out star anise and set aside.
Whip egg whites with cream of tartar until foamy. Slowly add in sugar and keep whipping until a stiff peak.
Fold in coconut, lemon zest and spiced juice.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
Toss all ingredients together.
Serve tropical fruit salad in a bowl with the star anise macaroons on the side.
