This spice from Yamatsu Tsujita has all of the hallmarks of an amazing sansho - a bright, citrus-y aroma, it makes your mouth water and your tongue & lips mildly numb. But what makes it special is that it is a delicate blend of three varieties of sansho: Yamaasakura, Asakura and Budo. This produces a depth of flavor that shines through it all. It pairs really well with grilled meats, BBQ eel, scallops, etc.
Chosen by Tsujita-san himself, the tin is designed to store Yamatsu Tsujita's Sansho and for using at the table. To fill, just remove the top, empty the spice pouch into the tin, and replace the top. When you're ready to add some spice to your dish, rotate the top until the holes align and then sprinkle the spice on your food. Rotate again to close.
Together they make the perfect accompaniment on the table.
Tsujita-san recommends keeping his spices in the freezer when not using to preserve freshness.
Sansho ingredients: ground dried Japanese pepper (sansho)
