Product Description

Size: 8 oz.

An essential ingredient in Chinese cooking, Szechuan peppercorns are once again allowed to be imported. Our Szechuan peppercorns are imported directly from the growing region in China. These tiny, reddish-brown peppercorns are noted for their strong, pungent flavor that distinguishes them from black peppercorns. They are used a great deal in Szechuan cooking which is noted for its spiciness. Noted Chinese cookbook author Irene Kuo wrote that only the seeded peppercorns should be purchased since the flavor and aroma only come from the petal-like husks. Ours are just that and are free of twigs and other residue. Szechuan peppercorns are often used as a seasoning for roasted meats and poultry.

Fast service, good connection.

The seed itself contributes nothing except an unpleasant grittiness if you should grind it up.

This came packed in 4 plastic bags inside a "Bubble Envelope". The weight of the entire package - unopened and undamaged - was 14.2 ounces. Don't know about China, but in the USA that's well short of a pound. Not going to bother with trying to get my money back, but you need to be aware of this.

The active agent in Szechuan Pepper is found in the pericarp (husk) surrounding the seed. The seed itself contributes nothing except an unpleasant grittiness if you should grind it up. This shipment contained everything unseparated: stems, seeds and husks. It is unusable in this form, and taking the seeds and stems out is a very laborious process which I did not anticipate having to do. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

The peppercorns arrived just a few days after ordering. The husk is all there is, just like it should be. However there are a few of the black pits left, but the are very few. It is just like the couple of stones you find in a pound of lentils. I am happy with this product and will probably order other spices from this company.

When I opened the package a wonderful aroma was greeting me! This was the first time I experimented with Szechuan Peppercorns. They are not really peppercorns but husks. You have to dry roast them for a few minutes then grind them. I used them in a oil based marinade for my chicken dish...very yummy and pleasantly unusual. Delivery was fast and the peppercorns appear to be super fresh.

Although these are said to be "hull-only," there are still a lot of seeds--so much so that I can't cook with these until I have sorted through and removed all the little black devils lurking amongst the delicious hulls. If you find that your dishes have an unpleasantly gritty texture, the seeds are to blame. Delicious, but not as advertised.

I ordered an 8 oz. package of peppercorns...wow, just wow...that is a LOT of peppercorns. Unless you expect to use these a lot, think about a smaller package! I may be using these in the nursing home.

My package arrived quickly, and was well packed. Looking at a previous review that insisted the package was lightweight, I weighed my bag of peppercorns upon arrival and it was exactly 8 oz. So I wouldn't be too concerned about a lightweight package.

These peppercorns are beautiful, with a lively flavor and plump appearance. They are not shriveled like many peppercorns. I used them to make Kung Pao chicken and ZING they about burned my face off! But in a good way. Such peppery, fresh, citrusy hot flavor. Love them!!!

If I ever run out (ever)...I will reorder from this seller!

I thought I wrote a review but it magically disappeared. Anyway, here it goes again. These peppercorns are okay but lack the punch of better ones I have had in the past. Those are hard to find though. You taste them in dishes like shuizhurou in authentic Sichuan restaurants, also hard to find.

I weighed the peppercorns upon receipt as one reviewer said he received less weight than the package was advertised. The weight was exactly 16 oz, the peppercorns are good, the shipping was quick. I am satisfied with my purchase.
