Size:2×32 Ounce Unfiltered Szechuan pepper consists of the outer pod of the
fruit of an aromatic shrub or small tree native to China, and now found
throughout the temperate zones of China, Japan, the Himalayas and North
America. It is not technically a pepper at all, but a member of the Rutaceae
(rue or citrus) family and closely related to the prickly ash. Szechuan pepper
has a similar action on the taste buds; instead of being hot or pungent like
black, white, or chili peppers, it creates a unique tingling, numbing pins-
and-needles sensation (the scientific name for which is paresthenia, caused by
its 3% content of hydroxy-alpha-sanshool) that prepares the palate for hot
spices. Appropriately for a member of the citrus family, Szechuan pepper is
characterized by its tart, lemony, acrid flavor; it is also woodsy and
slightly peppery, with a complex progression of flavors that Tony Hill, in The
Contemporary Encyclopedia of Herbs and Spices, describes as moving from
?citrus zest to numbing shock to lingering mild sweetness.?
