If you love the tingly sensation of dried Sichuan Peppercorns, like I do, you'll know that they often lose their potency once their package has been opened, even if they're decanted into a kilner jar. While dried Sichuan peppercorns offer remarkable flavours, they must be ground and prepared, with a possibility that coarse fragments give an unpleasant mouth feel.
Introducing Premium Sichuan Pepper Oils which are more convenient to use and preserve the flavour and potency much longer.
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 flavours. 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. You can compare and contrast them yourself by buying this elegantly designed gift pack which contains one Green and one Red Sichuan pepper oil, accompanied by 50Hertz's informational insert card which tells the stories of the brand and the less known facts about Sichuan Pepper. It's really a cool and unique gift to introduce a novel flavour to your food loving family and friends.
These are not just more hot sauces. In fact, they are not hot at all. The floral bouquet flavour stimulates your palate and nose, while the unique tingling sensation stimulates your tongue and lips. Best as a condiment over pasta, ramen noodles, pizza and salads. A few drops go a long way.
To use: You can put them on any food because of their versatility and ease of use. Use them as a marinade, seasoning, dressing or simply as a condiment and drizzle on any meal. As the New York Times put it, it's "an oil that tingles and transforms".
