Chinese Five Spice
Achieve a spectacular stir fry with our take on this traditional Chinese blend of five spices: fennel, cinnamon, star anise, Szechuan pepper and cloves. Use about 1 to 2 tablespoons per pound of meat or tofu. Try adding soy sauce or fish sauce, garlic and red chili paste for an authentic flavor. Also try as a dry rub on ribs, as part of a marinade for the grill, or mix it with brown sugar to make a topping for roasted nuts.
Hand-mixed from: Fennel seed, cinnamon, star anise, cloves and Szechuan pepper. (Salt-free)

Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.
