Incredible Sichuan Ramen Noodles - Sichuan Pepper

What Is Sichuan Pepper?

Sichuan pepper comes from the seed husks of a plant that is native to the Sichuan Region of China.

The seed husks come from two species of the Prickly Ash shrub (Zanthoxylum), a member of the citrus family, and recognisable due to their pink-red coloration.

The colorful seed husk is the only part of the “peppercorn” used for Sichuan pepper. The inner part of the seed is discarded as it is unpalatable.

The remaining Sichuan pepper is then used whole or ground to make a powder. Most commonly known as an ingredient in Chinese savory and hot chili dishes, it is also one of the ingredients in 5 spice powder.

Its popularity is more due to the sensation it causes to the mouth when eaten, rather than for the flavor!

The initial taste is bitter, which is followed with a spiced heat causing numbness and finishes with a burst of citrus.

Other than this amazing taste sensation, the Sichuan Peppers main claim to fame is the powerful numbing sensation it causes when eaten.
