Chinese Five Spice is heavily used in both China and Vietnam. This powerful blend is used to roast meat and poultry, in marinades as well as in sauces containing Soy Sauce. Use sparingly.
The origin of Five Spice Powder is unknown. However, many believe that this five spice came about as a result of the Chinese goal to create the ultimate “wonder powder” that would include all five taste elements: sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, and salty.
Five-spice powder has many ancient uses but also has newer and more modern uses. Experiment and see what you might find!
Make sure to store in a cool, dry, dark location and in an air-tight storage container for best freshness.
Ingredients: Anise, Cinnamon, Fennel Seed, Clove, and Ginger.
