Chinese Five Spice Powder (amazingribs)


1 T cinnamon powder
1 T clove powder
1 T fennel seed powder
1 T Szechwan peppercorn powder
1 T star anice powder
1 t ginger
1 t nutmeg

If you have only whole cloves, fennel seed, Szechwan peppercorns or star anise you can grind them in a spice grinder, coffee grinder or a mortar and pestle. Whole seeds grind down to much less volume so use about 1 1/2 times the quantity before grinding. In other words, if you don’t have fennel seed powder, start with 1 1/2 T fennel seeds and grind them to powder. You might need 2 T star anise seeds to make 1 T of powder. You don’t have to be precise in making this blend.
