this sounds so yummy and I do like Mango and cantaloupe and fresh strawberries. What is 5-spice powder? How do I rate recipes? I have no idea. It sounds like a 5 at least to me until I can try it. I am going to get the stuff and do that this weekend.

You can purchase the five spice powder at any grocery store in the spice section. It is an Asian spice mixture that is used in a number of dishes. It already has all of the spices mixed together, in one bottle. Used in the right recipe, it makes the dish!

Sounds good except what is a five spice powder? What five spices in what quantities for each? I have never seen anything called a five spice powder?

This will be so excellent to try. It has so many lucious fruits and the spices will truly make it something to remember.
