Sansho/ Japanese pepper 山椒

We have a Sansho (Japanese pepper) tree in the front yard.


The young leaves (kinome) are used to garnish food, such as bamboo shoot rice. You can also pick the fruit while they are green and preserve with salt. Sansho has a very unique aroma and the fruit is quite spicy.


But we usually wait until the fruit burst open on the tree and dry them under the sun for several days, and use it to make chili oil.
