Chinese Style Five Spice Rub

This simple mixture of five spices commonly used in Chinese cooking works great as a rub or in a marinade. The ingredients may be a little more difficult to obtain, but the effort is well worth the result. This is probably one of the easiest recipes to assemble.


1 1/2 cups


1/4 cup whole star anise pods
5 tablespoons whole cloves
5 tablespoons Szechuan peppercorns
5 tablespoons fennel seed
1/4 cup ground cinnamon


Grind the anise pods, cloves, peppercorns, fennel, and cinnamon in a spice mill or with a mortar and pestle to a fine powder.


Store in a sealed container in a cool dark place until needed.
