Five spice powder is a Chinese spice and seems odd in an Italian recipe. With only 4 tablespoons of sugar in 7+ cups of liquid (not 5) I am concerned as to how sweet it can be. While this recipe looks interesting, I am concerned about the other ingredients such as the Dijon mustard. I will check back and see if you actually make this, since you stated in the forums that you created this in your head. I hope the quantities are adjusted to what looks more like a workable recipe.
