FIVE SPICE HOMEMADE POWDER (SALLYE)
szechuan or black peppercorns
1Preheat heavy dry skillet (I use cast iron) to medium heat.
Add peppercorns and shake around or stir with wooden spoon about 2 minutes until aroma is released.
Remove peppercorns into a small bowl.
2In same skillet add star anise and fennel seed. Shake around or stir with wooden spoon for about 2 minutes.
Remove from heat
3Place all inredients into spice grinder or blender and grind until a fine powder is formed.
Let rest for a minute or two for powder to settle.
Pour into airtight container and store in cool dry place.
Will keep for several months.
4NOTE: IF YOU DON'T HAVE A SPICE GRINDER, I SUGGEST YOU BUY THE STAR ANISE ALREADY GROUND. IT IS VERY HARD TO GRIND IN A BLENDER.
Use 1 tablespoon of ground anise as alternate
