Chinese Five Spice
An eclectic blend to encompass all the five tastes—sweet, salty, sour, bitter and hot, the Chinese Five Spice mix is made from blending cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds, star anise and Szechuan peppers. It adds an exotic kick to any dish and goes particularly well with pork and tofu. Use it to season steamed and stir-fried dishes. It also makes a perfect spice rub when grilling or roasting.
