Ingredients:- China Tung Hing cinnamon (cassia), powdered cassia buds, powdered star anise and anise seed, ginger root, and ground cloves and szechuan peppercorns. Five-spice powder is a convenient seasoning in Chinese cuisine. It incorporates the five basic flavours of Chinese cooking — sweet, sour, bitter, savoury, and salty. A versatile seasoned salt can easily be made by stir-frying sea salt with five spice powder under low heat in a dry pan until the spice and salt are well mixed. Use five-spice powder sparingly, as it can be quite pungent.
Add it whenever you want to lend flavour to stir-fries, soups and red-cooked dishes. It works well with meats, is good in barbequing, and makes an excellent marinade.
