This 5-spice marinade is an easy to make, must-have seasoning. It works wonderfully with all types of meats and seafood. Add a splash to noodles and veggie stir-frys to perk up the flavors. I love the fragrant yet subtle taste. Go ahead and make a few extra bottles and give them to your family and friends. They will love it!

Peel the skin from the tangerine and place by a sunny window. Allow the skin to dry for a day.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add all spices and toast in pan for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Take a 3×3 inch section of the tangerine skin and cut into thin strips. Pour vodka into a glass bottle filling it almost to the top. Drop in the tangerine strips and toasted spices. Fill the bottle to the top with vodka and securely seal with a cap.
Allow the spices to infuse in the vodka for at least 30 days.
Store the marinade in your cupboard for no longer than 1 year.
Yields: 2 cups
