Why Should I Buy This Product?
Sansho Japanese pepper is obtained from the Japanese prickly ash. It is closely related to Sichuan pepper but has more pronounced citrus flavors. Most people have a common misconception that Sansho and Sichuan peppers are the same and can therefore be interchanged. This is simply untrue.
Sansho is the dried and ground husk of the Sichuan pepper, which is neither a peppercorn nor a chili pepper. It looks more like a berry when you see it on the tree, or like a coffee bean. The peppers are used widely in Asian cooking, especially Chinese Sichuan (also spelled “Szechwan”) cooking.
Sansho pepper is usually sold ground, but you can also buy the berries and grind it yourself. It’s typically used on grilled foods like yakitori (chicken) or eel.
