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.
