Here’s a simple authentic recipe for Chinese Five Spice powder.
Place all ingredients in a spice grinder (or coffee grinder) and grind until smooth.
Smell the goodness.
Store in a sealed, airtight spice jar -and for best flavor use within 6 months.
Makes ¼ cup.
For more intense flavor, lightly toast whole seeds/pods in a dry skillet for a couple of minutes, before grinding
In a pinch you could sub 1 tablespoon anise seeds, but it won’t be quite the same flavor.
