I love the flavor of 5 spice. No, I have not made this yet BUT thank you so much for posting a recipe for it.
The Szechuan pepper can be a little hard to find, so when you do, make a big batch of this and toss it on everything from grilled pork, chicken or shrimp to popcorn. Very good. I did this recipe as a part of the Western Region's Faceless Frenzy July 2012.
