Chinese Five Spice

I regularly mix up my own spice blends. I have recipes of Indian and Mexican spice blends, too. But my favorite is this Chinese five spice version with its strong anise flavor. It's so convenient to make this mix from pantry staples I have on hand. —Lydia Scott, Englehart, Ontario
