Description & Use

Not a true pepper but the dried, burst seed pods of a prickly ash tree. The taste is hot like pepper, lingering and somewhat ‘fizzy’ on the tongue. It is used in many Asian recipes, especially stocks for making roast duck and pork, and is the pepper that should be included in a genuine Salt & Pepper Squid.

Produce of China packed in Australia.
