50Hertz Dried Sichuan Pepper Gift Box


50Hertz Dried Sichuan Pepper Gift Box

Regular price $33.90
Our elegantly designed gift pack contains one jar of green and one jar of red dried Sichuan peppers, accompanied by our informational insert card which tells the stories of our brand and the less known facts about Sichuan pepper. It's really a cool and unique gift to introduce a novel flavor to your food loving family and friends. The extra $4 of buying this gift combo (as opposed to just two jars) is simply the cost of making and folding the box.
Usage: When cooking, crush with a pestle, then lightly fry in oil or butter, and add to stir-fry, soup, stew, or baking recipes. When serving, grind directly on to foods as with black peppercorns. The green goes particularly well with fish and seafood while the red with tofu and red meat . 

Storage: Keep in a cool and dry place or refrigerate to prolong life and aroma

With its bright color, floral aroma, potent taste, and lack of black seeds, it is the crème de la crème of the latest harvest. Our green Sichuan peppers has the highest flavor content among all varieties (notice the plump oil bumps on the shell) while our red ones use the most premium Da Hong Pao (Big Red Gown) variety. Only this variety shows this dazzling flower petal shape as you can see in the photos. They are hand-picked by farmers in Sichuan and Gansu province. 

Sichuan pepper, formerly known as Szechuan peppercorns, is unique for its dazzling aroma and electrifying tingling sensation. Unlike chili peppers with New World origins, the red Sichuan pepper is indigenous to China and has been used in cooking for centuries, defining iconic dishes such as Mapo Tofu and Kung Pao Chicken.

Sichuan pepper is really a member of the citrus prickly ash family. Unlike black peppercorns, the numbing ingredients like hydroxy-alpha sanshool are concentrated in the SHELL, not the SEED. Fresh peppers have to be handpicked as automation hasn't arrived, and then gently dried so that the shell can split open and the black, bitter seed can fall out.
