Dry-roasting these berries will bring out their best flavor. Roast berries for 3-4 minutes over medium heat. After they cool, grind and use as needed. Great for stir fries, grilling and roasting. Try on chicken, fish, beef and veggies.
Sze Chuan Pepper
Szechuan peppercorns are a true taste sensation like none other in the spice world. They are very fragrant, slightly woody with a hint of citrus. When you bite into a berry, you’ll taste an immediate citrus like flavor followed by a slight numbing effect which bursts into a tingling sensation on the tip of your tongue. This sensation is caused by an enzyme releasing; waking up your mouth and intensifying all the intermingling flavors.
