If you are looking forward to making a Chinese style dish for Chinese New Year, you can make your own Chinese Five Spice powder without having to buy a jar of it pre-made. This is good if you only make Chinese food occasionally, and don’t want to buy an entire jar. And as a bonus, most of you will already have all the ingredients in your spice cupboard already!
- 1 tbsp ground star anise
- 2 tsp ground fennel
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
Mix well and store in an airtight container or spice jar.
Don’t forget we have many other spice jar mixes at MomsBudget including veggie dips, fruit tips, popcorn seasonings and more!
