the air is full of spices

I am planning a recipe this week that calls for Chinese five-spice powder. I had never used and had not really heard of this spice blend. They do have it in the spice rack at the grocery store but because I have all 5 of the necessary spices. I made my own.
Sichuan pepper, star anise, fennel seeds, cinnamon & cloves. Don’t you wish you could smell it! Fabulous!
