Every once in a while you need to try something creative you’ve never tried before—but it doesn’t have to be a big something.
Today, I made five-spice powder. Actually, I only ground the star anise and fennel seeds. The others were already powder that I could just stir in.
Still, it should be five-space powder, I think, as in five spaces* in your kitchen—or more!—will get powdered in your grinding and mixing activities.
* In my case, two counters (all I have), the floor, the table, and my hands. Plus, a mortar and pestle (also producing one palm blister), the food processor, another bowl, the fine-mesh strainer…see, it mounts up!
