Meaning "mountain pepper" in Japanese, Sansho pepper is in the citrus family and not a true peppercorn. Causing a delightful tingling and numbing sensation in the mouth due to a compound called sanshol, it is a fabulous garnish or addition to fresh sauces or salad dressings. Rare and exceptional, our Sansho has a beautifully citrusy and herbal aroma that is also perfect for balancing out richly flavored foods like oily fish, cheese and eggplant.
