Szechuan Peppercorn Powder (2oz) - The Szechuan peppercorn or Sichuan pepper, is quite aromatic but not very hot. It has a numbing property which in China is known as "ma". This pepper, in addition to its unique flavor, will produce a light tingling sensation in the mouth. Like a chile pepper, in certain amounts the sensation can be quite pleasing and causes the release of endorphins in the brain, which make you feel pleasure. The Sichuan Peppercorn comes from the bud of the Prickly Ash tree.
Szechuan peppercorns are a main ingredient in Chinese Five-Spice, and are often used alongside ingredients such as chile peppers, star anise, onion, vinegar, brown sugar, ginger, tangerine peel, and cinnamon in Sichuan cuisine. The ground peppers are perfect in a rub over duck, added to garlic-laden stir-fries, or added to crock pots for braised or stewed meats. Use to make Dan Dan Noodles, Bang Bang Chicken, Hong Kong Salt Shrimp and many others.
