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.

Our single-origin product uses the Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) variety, and is hand-picked by farmers in Sichuan and Gansu and Sichuan province. With its bright color, floral aroma, potent taste, and lack of black seeds, it is the crème de la crème of the latest harvest.

Flavor notes: Citrus (orange peel), dried flowers, warm  

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 scrambled eggs, meat, veggies and pasta as with black peppercorns.
