I like to grind my own Chinese Five Spice as I think it tastes fresher than bought stuff but I always forget the five key ingredients so I wanted to make a note of them here.
Chinese Five Spice
Equal quantities of:
- Star anise
- Sichuan peppercorns
- Fennel seeds
Grind up the above ingredients in a spice grinder and store in a jar. You don’t need to make up too much at a time as the flavours are very strong and a little goes a long way.
