Chinese Five Spice incorporates all five of the traditional Asian taste elements (sweet, sour, bitter, pungent and salty) in a single blend. Use it as a dry rub, an integral seasoning in a dish, and even as a finishing spice sprinkled on at serving. The flavor profile is meant to provide a mild undertone to enhance the native flavor of the elements of a dish. Our rule of thumb is 1-2 Tbsp of spice per pound of main ingredient. This blend has no salt in it because it is often combined with other ingredients that are salty such as fish sauce, soy sauce or tamari, so use these additional elements or some salt to season to your liking.
