Plant-Based Single Origin Spice 
Sichuan peppercorn
Zanthoxylum piperitum


Not to be confused with Peppercorns from the Piper nigrum vine.

Sichuan or Szechwan peppercorns are native to the southwest province of China that borders Tibet. Around spring, harvest time the blood-red berries are hand-picked and dried allowing splitting open to reveal tiny, black bitter seeds, which are discarded. The actual spice is the heavenly scented empty husk. Szechwan peppercorns are very fragrant, with notes of citrus peel and hints of lavender. Its flavor is similarly pepper-like and tangy while leaving a numbing or tingling effect in the mouth.


These peppercorns are one of the main ingredients in a Chinese five-spice blend. For best results, slightly dry roast for two minutes, crush and use on green beans, stir-fried vegetables, and roasted meats. I love it on roasted duck breast and wild game such as venison. It combines well with sesame oil, ginger, soy sauce, star anise, and black beans.
