Sichuan Peppercorns

Rated 4.8 out of 5
Based on 9 reviews

Sichuan peppercorns are full of surprises. They're actually seed husks, not peppercorns. They're fragrant and lemony, not purely spicy. They have a numbing effect on the lips and tongue, which opens the taste buds to other sensations. Chinese Sichuan peppercorns are prized in Nepali and Tibetan cuisine. Also available in Sansho Peppercorns.

Details

This pepper is native to the Sichuan region of China. It is now cultivated throughout China, Korea, Mongolia, Nepal and Bhutan. More than 2,000 years ago it was mixed with plaster to perfume the walls of imperial palaces. Sichuan peppercorn, or Szechuan Peppercorn, is now a key ingredient in many kinds of Chinese cooking. That numbing sensation you get from an excellent Sichuan dish comes from this pepper. Toast Sichuan peppercorns or toss them into vegetable, seafood or meat dishes. These peppercorns become hottter as they cook. Ingredients: Sichuan peppercorns.

Excellent quality

A key to many Szechuan and other Chinese dishes, these dried buds are fragrant and provide the electric buzz and flavor characteristic of this spice.

These are fresh and of very good quality.

Should come with a warning for the very inquisitive

Was curious about this spice so of course had to try it , well it looks very interesting , so I open it up and take a couple of pieces out smell it very peppery, the I pop it in my mouth and chew them up a great explosion happens, incredibly strong my mouth hose very ting-a-ling the like I swallowed a shoot of novacaine numb . This would beat cloves for a tooth cake , must of been an hour before feeling came back , imagine just two tiny hules . Now I know why they can take the hot stuff , they've numbed all the pain.

Unique taste

This was exactly as I'd seen it described. They truly do create these unique, sort of numbing sensations. And for me, unlike actual peppercorns or other peppers, when I drink milk it seems to momentarily enhance the effect.

I've fallen in love with the sensations--hence the recent reorder.

Hold the spice!

The spices are just so potent than what you get at the Asian markets, so use less. The clarity of the peppercorn is just a wonderful addition to making authentic Chinese dishes.

Stronger than what I bought in China

One bite took me right back to my first hot pot in Shanghai. I managed to track down some peppercorns before I left, but these put them to shame. Highly recommended!
