DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a heavy bottom skillet over medium-low heat. Add peppercorns and shake pan back and forth for 2-3 minutes.
  • Immediately put peppercorns into a spice grinder, along with the star anise and fennel seed. Grind until the spices are finely powdered. Sift the spices through a fine mesh strainer and discard what remains behind. Put powdered spices back into the grinder and add the ground cinnamon and ground clove. Mix again until thoroughly combined.
  • Store in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dark place for 4-6 months. (I usually make a double batch and use a small (4 oz) baby food jar for storage).
  • Enjoy your "Home-made Chinese Five Spice Powder"!
