Peppercorns, Szechuan - 8 Oz
An essential ingredient in Chinese cooking, Szechuan peppercorns are once again allowed to be imported. Our Szechuan peppercorns are imported directly from the growing region in China. These tiny, reddish-brown peppercorns are noted for their strong, pungent flavor that distinguishes them from black peppercorns. They are used a great deal in Szechuan cooking which is noted for its spiciness. Noted Chinese cookbook author Irene Kuo wrote that only the seeded peppercorns should be purchased since the flavor and aroma only come from the petal-like husks. Ours are just that and are free of twigs and other residue. Szechuan peppercorns are often used as a seasoning for roasted meats and poultry.
