50Hertz Dried Green Sichuan Pepper


50Hertz Dried Green Sichuan Pepper

Regular price $14.95
1LB packaging available for businesses and tingle aficionados. Email us at tingle@50hertzfoods.com to inquire wholesale pricing. 

Size: 1.5 ounces (43g)

Flavor notes: Citrus (lime zest), fresh flowers, bright

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, seafood and anything citrusy. 

Storage: Keep our products in cool and dry places, avoid direct light. Refrigeration is encouraged to prolong potent taste and aroma.

Our single-origin product uses the most premium variety which has the highest flavor content amongst all (notice the plump oil bumps on the shell). It is hand-picked by farmers in Chongqing, our founder's hometown. With its bright color, floral aroma, potent taste, and lack of black seeds, it is the crème de la crème of the latest harvest.

Sichuan pepper, formerly known as Szechuan peppercorns, is unique for its dazzling aroma and electrifying tingling sensation. It comes in two distinct varieties, red and green. While the red have been used in cooking for centuries, the green variety has only become popular in the past 20 years. 

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.

Green Sichuan Peppers are wonderful

I truly love these green peppers as much as the red peppers and the oils I have received from 50Hertz. They're great on almost anything I prepare. I would recommend trying both the red and the green to see which ones appeal to you the most. I am still trying to decide which ones I enjoy more. They're both so great!

The tingles are amazing- unlike anything else

This is a whole new category of spice. Unlike anything you’ve tasted before. It enhances food flavor instead of covering or adding to it. Highly recommend you learn how to cook with it. A little kicks your entrée up a notch from good to a memorable meal people will talk about and ask for again and again.

If you can’t visit Sichuan…

Until trying these (red and green), I had forgotten what Szechuan peppercorns were supposed to taste like. The “la” I get from these is like what I have had in Sichuan, but have never found outside China. Total game changer for those of us who enjoy cooking Szechuan at home.
