    Thanks Justin!!!

    I get my Star Anise from a local spice shop here. I do know that our Safeway also carries it. I get the whole star anise not powdered. Each whole piece has 5-6 arms. I used three pieces this time. If I hadn't been in such a hurry I would've charred the anise and cinnamon stick in a hot skillet. Brings out more flavor.

    I forgot I used half a cinnamon stick and didn't include that...

    DirtSailor2003-those look awfully good.  What is your 5 spice recipe?

    Thank you!

    2-3 nubs of Star Anise, pepper (? I just grind it in until it looks like enough), brown sugar (1/4 cup +), ginger (fresh about a thumb sized piece sliced), garlic (3-4 cloves minced). 1/2 cup soy, 1/2 cup water (can use saki instead of water). mix together and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add more sugar if needed to balance the saltiness of the soy. Sometimes I'll add half a stick of cinnamon. I have also been known to add fish sauce sometimes, but only if more salt is needed. Usually the soy is plenty.

  12. So can you provide your recipe for the marinade?

    Thanks DirtSailor.

    About how far do you reduce the 1 cup of marinade you have reserved?  Then you baste your wings with it with about what...15 minutes to go?

    Close to about half. I also add more brown sugar, and sometimes will add a few drops of sesame oil.

    Thank you Josie! I was lucky to get the few I had! My boys were eating them so fast you would've thought I'd put chocolate bars out for dinner!!!
     
  19. ha-ha.  Maybe next time you should make a double batch lol....

    Or I need to add a bit of heat to keep them away! A few thai chiles would add a nice kick to this recipe!
