PREPARING FIVE SPICE POWDER

It is recommended that you use whole spices, instead of already ground
because it tends to hold in the flavor instead of simply drowning it out.

INGREDIENTS:

   ·   1oz STAR ANISE
   ·   1oz CINNAMON
   ·   1oz SICHUAN PEPPERCORN
   ·   1oz CUMIN SEEDS
   ·   ½ oz CLOVE
   ·   ¼ oz CORRIANDAR SEEDS

A pinch of Black Cardamom simply for taste, always optional.
Over medium heat, roast each spice separately until odorous. Each spice
may take different amounts of time to roast, so it s best to use separate
pans. When each spice is cooled down to room temperature, grind each
spice in grinder, again separately, then blend all spices together in a
large bowl.
Good to go!
