Sichuan Peppercorns

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. Native to China’s Sichuan province, they're prized in Nepali and Tibetan cuisine.
