    Pot Scrubber's Note:

    This popular Japanese spice mixture translates as seven-flavor or seven-spice mix. It is sometimes also called Nanami Togarashi. It is used in the kitchen and as a table condiment to flavor soups, noodles and grilled meats. Proportions can be varied. The aroma is of the dried tangerine peel, with a hint of iodine from the nori. The taste is somewhat dominated by the chili, but not overwhelmingly; and the texture is course. This is good stuff.

    1. 1
      Grind the white sesame seeds and szechuan peppercorns coarsely.
    2. 2
      Add the nori (seaweed) and dried tangerine peel and grind again briefly.
    3. 3
      Stir in the remaining spices and blend well.
    4. 4
      In an airtight container, the mixture will keep for 3-4 months.
    5. 5
      Note: You can buy the hard to find tangerine peel in the spice section if your market carries the brand Spice Island. It is a bit pricey, though. It costs about $7 US dollars for a 1oz/28gram bottle but it keeps for years.
    6. 6
      The Nori is in the Asian section of your supermarket. It is commonly sold in dried sheets to use for making sushi rolls.

      Oh, thank you thank you thank you for this! I used to be able to get this pretty much anywhere in the lower mainland of BC. Now that I'm back in the States I've had to either go to a specialty store or order it online. Thanks to you, I can make my own. Whee!!!
