Sansho is one of the oldest spices in human history, often called Japanese pepper or prickly ash. This product from Yamatsu Tsujita has all of the hallmarks - a bright, citrus-y aroma, it makes your mouth water and your tongue & lips mildly numb. But what makes it special is the depth of flavor that shines through it all. It pairs really well with grilled meats, BBQ eel, scallops, etc.
Keep in freezer when not using to preserve freshness.
Ingredients: ground dried Japanese pepper (sansho)
