Just what is in the above ingredient? (Star anise, I believe.) I'm all out and need to use it in a recipe and don't feel like making a special trip. Any good substitutes?
Thanks, folks. As it turns out, we had most of those ingredients. always fun to improvise!
Keep a track of your starting measurements; if you start grinding your own and want some semblance of consistency batch to batch you'll want to know how you made it in the first place.
It's called five-spice because there are five ingredients.
Depending on who makes it, you can have star anise, cinnamon, Sichuan peppercorn, black pepper, cloves, fennel seed, ginger, and/or, orange peel.
I made a big jar of fresh ground last year in November.
I gave half away and still have what appears to be a full jar. A little goes a long way, but one can store in in the freezer.
