Green Sichuan Pepper Oil
Green Sichuan Pepper Oil
Size: 100 ml (3.4 ounces)
Ingredients: First-grade, cold-pressed, non-GMO rapeseed oil, Fresh Green 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.

Direct Procurement from Farmers
Sichuan Pepper must be handpicked which requires a dexterous, attentive and experienced labor force. Notice the sharp spikes on the branches in the photos. While avoiding the thorns, farmers need to work carefully to preserve the peppers intact. We cut the middlemen and directly procure the peppers from farmers to increase their revenue and more importantly bring them immense pride and joy when they have learnt their hard work is enjoyed overseas.

The boss and I are hooked on this, she puts it on everything - eggs, vegetables, rice, etc.
No getting away from it now, unless you come out with a new product.
I did not get that wow factor as expected, the tingling was unique, the smell,..
was odd, I'll keep trying with other food items.
I use this exclusively in my miso soup. I buy the soup packets from Japan, add a few items, pour in a soupspoon of Chinese chili oil and a like amount of 50Hertz Green Sichuan Pepper oil. This is my lunch on weekends. I look forward to it all week. Tasty, tasty, tasty. A good read that includes this flavor is, 'Shark's Fin and Sichuan Pepper', by Fuschia Dunlop.
I'm enjoying the delicate floral tingle in my mouth. My friends who I've gifted a bottle are pleasantly surprised and quite satisfied with a new culinary seasoning delight.
Use it on salad, noodles veggies & chicken. Love it!
