From the producer:
Use: Compared to dried Sichuan (Szechuan) Peppercorns, the oil is more convenient to use and preserves the flavor and potency much longer. It is not another hot sauce. In fact, it is not hot at all. The floral bouquet flavor stimulates your palate and nose, while the unique tingling sensation stimulates your tongue and lips. Best as a finishing oil, drizzled over pasta, ramen noodles, pizza, and salads. Or be creative and add it as the finishing touch to your favorite dishes. A few drops go a long way.
Red vs. Green Sichuan Pepper: Many people are unaware that Sichuan pepper comes in two varieties - Red and Green. They are not in different stages of maturity but two plants with distinct flavors (think of red wine grapes and white wine grapes). Both are native to Sichuan, and while the red ones have been used in cooking for thousands of years, the green variety is more boutique and has only become popular in China in the past 20 years.
- Green - Aromas of lemon zest, fresh flowers, bright. Medium tingle. Great with fish, seafood, veggies, and pasta.
- Red - Aromas of orange zest, dried flowers, warm. Max tingle. Great with meat, tofu, and pizza
