11FIVE SPICE POWDER
In a small, heavy dry skillet, toast peppercorns over medium heat until they become fragrant, about 1 to 2 minutes. Shake pan often to prevent burning. Remove to a bowl.
12Repeat toasting process separately with star anise, fennel seeds, cinnamon, and cloves.
13Pour all of the toasted spices into a spice grinder (or clean coffee grinder) and grind to a fine powder.
14Let rest in the grinder for 1 minute, then transfer to a glass container and tighten lid. Store in a cool, dark place up to one month.
15Use five-spice powder sparingly, as it can be quite pungent.
