Do your Sichuan peppercorns contain the little black seeds?

Trackback |      [pinit]

Our Sichuan/Szechuan peppercorns are roasted whole.  From looking at a 1oz sample bag, I can tell you that ours appears to be primarily made up of husks that have popped open, but some are still closed.  Some stems and a few black seeds may be included, but they should be easy to remove.

I’d say this photo of our product is very representative of what you can expect in your order:

    Thank you – I think my question was largely due to my inexperience with using these things. No recipe I’ve used said to remove the black seeds and leaving them in, even finely ground, do give a ‘gritty’ feel to the food which isn’t nice at all.
