Szechuan Peppercorns aren't actually peppercorns at all. They're dried berries from the Chinese prickly ash bush and a key component of the Chinese Five Spice blend. Though dishes from Sichuan are known for their heat, that's because Szechuan Peppercorns are typically coupled with chilies in many famous dishes like hotpot. That numbing, tingling sensation they cause allows the diner to more fully enjoy these super spicy foods.
