Red Sichuan Pepper Oil
Red Sichuan Pepper Oil
Size: 100 ml (3.4 ounces)
Ingredients: First-grade, cold-pressed, non-GMO rapeseed oil, Fresh Red Sichuan Pepper
Storage: Keep in a cool and dry place or refrigerate to prolong life and aroma
Use: While dried Sichuan (Szechuan) Peppercorns offer remarkable flavors, they must be ground and prepared, with a possibility that coarse fragments give an unpleasant mouth feel. Sichuan Pepper Oil on the other hand is more convenient to use and preserves the flavor and potency much longer. It is not another hot sauce. In fact, it is not hot at all. The floral bouquet flavor stimulates your palate and nose, while the unique tingling sensation stimulates your tongue and lips. Best as a condiment over pasta, ramen noodles, pizza and salads. A few drops go a long way.
Red vs. Green Sichuan Pepper: Many people are unaware that Sichuan Pepper comes in two varieties - Red and Green. They are not in different stages of maturity but two plants with distinct flavors (think of red wine grapes and white wine grapes). Both are native to Sichuan, and while the red ones have been used in cooking for thousands of years, the green variety is more boutique and has only become popular in China in the past 20 years. You can compare and contrast them yourself by buying both oils in our 2-bottle pack (available in November).
