This is so fragrant and easy I will never purchase five spice powder again. But for keeping up to 2 months I don`t think so. It`ll be gone way before that so I`ll be doubling the recipe next time.

This spice powder is terrific. DH and I are on WW and I was looking for something to sprinkle on grilled meat. This adds a definite new taste to plain old chicken, pork, etc.

I tried it both ways and it was definately better roasted. I used this to make #60559, which turned out pretty well. It had a nice cinnamon flavor with just a hint of everything else. Don't know how much we'll end up using this spice mix, but it was at least good in the one dish. Thanks.
