Chinese Five Spice

Spices and spice mixtures ground fresh in your Thermomix will always give a better flavour than shop bought versions. This Chinese Five spice recipe is a useful store cupboard standby to add a hint of the Orient to your dishes and is used in the wonderful Asian Salad recipe (coming soon) on this blog too.

Five-spice powder is a spice mixture of five or more spices used predominantly in Chinese and Taiwanese cuisine and also used less commonly in other Asian and Arabic cookery. Five-spice powder is used for cocktails as well.
