Chinese 5 Spice Powder


Have been looking for "Chinese 5 Spice Powder" everywhere in the grocery stores around our area: Acme, Shop Rite, Shop n Bag, Murphy's, Wegmans, Traders, etc.

What are these 5 spices? Perhaps they are already in my spice rack?

Thanks for a prompt reply.

P.S. wanted to make the Coconut Shrimp by Rachel Ray


Hi Ingrid,

If you want to buy the spice, you might have more success shopping online for it.

You can make your own, however, using this recipe:

5-Chinese Spice

1 tsp. ground Szechwan pepper
1 tsp. ground star anise
1-1/4 tsp. ground fennel seeds
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground white pepper

Combine ingredients and store in an airtight container. Store in a cool, dry place.

  Download this recipe.
