    I've been trying different seasonings in my chicken soup/stew. Nothing so far has given me the taste I long for. Recently, I tried the 5 spice in it. OMG! Is it ever good! I also added some dried basil. I love it when as experiment turns out so nice!

    I needed Five Spice Powder to make a recipe for bolognese. I used ground lamb instead of pork and five spice powder was a marriage made in heaven. I used cinnamon sticks since I had them but I didn't take the time to roast the spices beforehand. Still was a wonderful dish and will try making the pork variation to see how it goes. Only if I opened a wine with this pasta dish! Bet a dry Brachetto would be the perfect match on a warm May evening.

    I used this to make Barbequed Pork- Chinese Style recipe#60559. I had forgotten to buy 5 spice powder while shopping and this recipe was a perfect substitute.

    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.
