    Pepper Sichuan Whole

    Product description

    Sichuan Pepper is an oriental fruit grown on a small ash tree native to the Sichuan province of China. Even though it is called pepper, it is not a true pepper and is not related to black peppercorns, which are from India. The berries have a warm peppery fragrance, with citrus notes & a clean fresh aftertaste leaving a slightly numbing sensation on the tongue. It is the outer husk which has all the flavour, the internal hard black seed is edible but can add a bitter taste. It is a key ingredient in Chinese cuisine and used in some Asian recipes. It is used in our chilli sichuan salt and calamari salt and pepper blends.

    Saffron Threads Whole

    Product description

    Saffron is the world’s most expensive spice by weight. Saffron threads are the stigmas of a low-growing, purple-flowered crocus. Each flower produces only three threads, which must be picked and sorted by hand. It is also used for its slightly woody and sweeter floral aroma, colour and medicinal properties. Saffron’s golden color can be imitated by cheaper spices such as safflower and turmeric, but its rich and delicate flavor is unable to be imitated. It is highly valuable and has been used to colour and flavour dishes in a variety of cuisines, including Indian dishes such as saffron rice and biryani, Spanish dishes such as paella, Italian risottos and French bouillabaisse, as well as a range of other recipes including breads, seafood dishes and soups.
