Five Spice Powder

Mixture of spices used in Chinese cuisine

Five spice powder is an essential seasoning for much of Chinese cuisine.  It is traditionally a blend of star anise, Szechuan peppercorns, fennel, cloves and cinnamon.  It can be used on meats, stir-fries, soup and even makes a nice marinade.  Five spice powder should be used sparingly and also comes in tea bag like packets that can be added to simmering and braising sauces.
