Chinese 5 Spice

Chinese Five Spice

This is the Chinese bouquet garni. A good balance of all five flavours – sweet, sour, bitter, pungent and salty. Contrary to the conception that this blend was named after its five ingredients, it was actually originally named after the five elements with the belief that this blend brought balance to the human body through the medicinal benefits it provides. The combination of cinnamon, fennel, star anise, cloves and szechuan peppers is delicious in roasted and braised meat dishes and in stir fries. A good spice rub for greasy meats like pork & duck. Make a delicious marinade by mixing with honey and soy.
