Rehydrate in recently-boiled water - simply place the mushrooms in a small bowl and pour in the hot water until just covered, allow to sit for 15-20 mins until nice and soft and the water has been tinted a deep brown. Use both the mushrooms and the steeping liquid to flavour dishes.
When using the rehydrating liquid, be sure not to pour in the small amount of sediment and grit at the bottom of the bowl.

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 that 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.
