Sichuan Peppercorns can assert themselves in strong dishes and add a surprising twist to black bean chili, roasted lamb, and a peppery beef stir fry. Use them with ginger to make a spicy broth for dumpling soup, or pair with tofu to make the traditional Sichuan dish mapo. Steep in oil with hot chiles for a spicy oil to drizzle on top of your food. The delicate citrus side of Sichuan Peppercorns can be highlighted, too, mixed into vanilla ice cream. It also adds a surprising lift to peach cobbler or tarte tatin.
