Organic Chinese Five Spice Mix by Hatton Hill Organic. This Chinese classic is an indispensable and delicious blend of organic spices that has uses far beyond its oriental origins. Product of more than one country. Packed in the UK.
Our organic Chinese five spice mix is a magical spice blend that brings a wide range of dishes to life thanks to its complementary yet contrasting array of flavours. It gets its name simply because it's made up of five spices – fennel, cassia, star anise, black pepper and cloves – that together provide all five flavour groups: sweet, bitter, salty, sour and umami (the rich, broth-like taste found in the most satisfying savoury foods).
Five spice mix is an anchor ingredient in much Chinese cuisine, used as a rub for chicken, duck, pork and seafood, in recipes for Chinese-style slow braising, and added to crusting for fried foods. You're most likely to have come across it in Hong Kong-style cha siu (red barbequed pork) and roasted duck.
Our organic five spice also has many uses outside Chinese culinary tradition, so you can sprinkle it into a wide range of dishes and let it work its magic. Try using it as a dry rub or in marinades for meat, poultry and seafood. Combine it with a little honey to make a delicious glaze for ham, chicken and ribs. Add it to stir-fries, and to stews and casseroles for an unmistakable, aroma and flavour. Toss some nuts in a little five spice and oil, and roast them in the oven for a flavoursome homemade snack with a difference. You can even add a dash of five spice to baked goods to give them a unique taste twist (gingerbread and ginger cookies are particularly yummy!).
