Chinese Five Spices
Traditional Chinese aromatic blend. Excellent with barbecues or braised dishes using duck, pork, pigeon, game or beef.
This blend of cassia buds, clove, star anise, fennel and Imperial Sichuan pepper is ideal for seasoning any Chinese recipe. The sweet notes of anise and cassia buds are a perfect foil to strong tasting meats. Great in stir-fries and noodle dishes. Combine Chinese Five Spices with salt for a great dry marinade for pork, poultry or seafood. Non-traditional use of Chinese Five Spices includes fruit desserts like plum cakes, poached pears and apple pie.
Ingredients: fennel, star anise, cassia buds, Sichuan pepper, clove.
