50Hertz Dried Red Sichuan Pepper


50Hertz Dried Red Sichuan Pepper

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

Size: 1.5 ounces (43g)

Flavor notes: Citrus (orange zest), dry 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 foods as with black peppercorns. The red goes particularly well with tofu and red meat . 

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 Da Hong Pao (Big Red Gown) variety. Only this variety shows this dazzling flower petals shape as you can see in the photos. It is hand-picked by farmers in Sichuan and Gansu 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.

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.

A pleasure to use

It's hard to imagine that there was a time when I would have to scour stores and online to find Sichuan pepper. Now, I feel a bit spoiled for choice. The 50Hertz dried pepper offerings (both green and red) are the most vibrant and aromatic that I have encountered. I can't imagine using any others at this point. Highly recommended!

Love the Dried Red Sichuan Peppers.

I was excited to receive my long awaited dried Sichuan peppers. I really wish that I would have ordered some of the green along with the red. I use the dried peppers in all of my stir fries, add a little to my stir fried rice, my wife suggested wisely that I add some to my toasted breads and that turned out wonderfully too. I am tempted to even sprinkle some of the dried peppers on my breakfast cereals:) I definitely add these dried peppers to all of my egg dishes and soups with gusto. I love the zing and the tingle. Keep up the great work. Can't wait to receive my green peppers asap. Thank you for a great product.

Gift

I purchased these for a gift, so they haven't been opened yet. The communication with the company is superb and I have enjoyed all the other products, so I believe these will be the same. Love dealing with this company.

Outstanding quality

I’ve been cooking with red sichuan peppercorns for decades, including the years when they were hard to come by because of some sort of import restriction. In those days it was common, when you could get them at all, for them to be dried out, dirty (you’d see grit that collected in the bottom of bags), and have lots of the bitter black seeds, which really had to be sorted out. It is a joy to get these peppercorns. They are fresh and fragrant, clean and essentially free of black seeds. They also have a very pronounced flavor, more than what I was used to, so be a bit cautious at first in using them. But, do use them! They really are superior.
