The Chinese practice balancing yin and yang in their meals, and so the heat of a dish should be countered with a cooling ingredient. This blend has a delightful group of flavors - warm, cool, sweet and spicy - that balance each other beautifully. Chinese Five Spice is a very versatile mixture perfect for vegetables, rice, pork and virtually any kind of stir fry. A dash of this blend also adds excitement to muffins, nut breads and waffle and pancake batter. Also adds a nice touch mixed with coffee grounds before brewing coffee.
Gently hand mixed from China Tung Hing cassia cinnamon, powdered star anise and anise seed, China No. 1 ginger and ground cloves.
