Chinese Five spice powder
« on: November 28, 2011, 10:32:00 am »
3  whole star anise
20 cloves
1  long piece of cinnamon
1 Tbs Sichuan pepper
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp white peppercorns or white pepper

Place all in TM

Cook on veroma temp for 7 minutes at  ^^ or untill hot and aromatic I sometime cook for 9 minutes.

Grind at speed 10 for 10 seconds

use spatula to scrape mix off the bottom and sides and scrape lid as well back into jug

Grind at speed 10 for 10 seconds.

Repeat until you have a fine spice mix. (Takes about 4 or 5 goes to get a fine spice)


I like the addition of the cumin in this recipe.

Use in any recipe requiring Five spice powder.
I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

Looks great Jen,  the whole spices have so much more flavor than the bought ground ones.

How important is the Sichuan pepper? For some reason I didn't see that on the recipe list before I went shopping and now have everything else but that...

Excellent adding the sichuan pepper.  I will do that next time.  My five spice has fennel seeds instead of the sichuan pepper...Mine will have to be Chinese 6 spice...
