Sometimes a new flavor is off-putting. Sometimes we have to try it a few times before we get past the unfamiliarity and are able to appreciate the new sensations our tongue is telling us. But sometimes you try something new, and you just think "Yum!"

That is what happened to me when I was living in Japan, and I reached for the unfamiliar little green bottle with the indecipherable writing and sprinkled some on my food. Yum.

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 has the unique quality of slightly numbing the tongue, which allows you to experience more of the flavor and less of the heat of other peppers. That makes it is one of the key ingredients in the famous Chinese 5-Spice and the Japanese 7-Spice blends.

On its own, sansho doesn't taste like pepper. It has a more aromatic character, almost a lemony/spicy quality. In Japan, it is said that sansho tastes like spring. The spice is traditionally used on unagi eel, or as a topping for hot noodle broths like udon.

Personally, I can put sansho on pretty much anything. It tastes great on scrambled eggs or pan-fried potatoes. I even recently made a batch of sansho chicken sausage that turned out fantastic. If you give it a taste, you will soon find plenty of foods that you think will benefit from a sprinkling of sansho.

This little green "S & B Sansho" bottle is about as ubiquitous as it gets in Japan. I don't know if I had any other kind of sansho, and I am thrilled that I can still get this in the US.

I was a bit surprised at the small container. I later found this item at my local oriental grocery for less money. The flavor is authentic and it is a useful spice.

A little spendy for a product that goes for a lot less in Japan, but since it's so hard to find in the U.S., I was happy to pay for it. Great little spice to add to your collection -- a little bit like a citrusy pepper.

Well-sealed and smells exactly like what I remember from Japan :)
