Huajiao. Flower pepper. (Sichuan pepper)

Not quite ready to pick.

“Huajiao”, Flower pepper, also known as Sichuan pepper, is used in stir fry, tea, and foot baths.

The pepper (shell is used) can be left as is or ground into a powder. It can also be added to hot oil then removed for a milder flavour.

Huajiao has a spicy, tingly numbness! As a foot bath, the pepper and leaves can be used to “dehumidify and expel cold.”

September, 2019 – Update

It was an odd gardening season. Bush beans were great where pole beans were non-existent. Beets were awful where turnips flourished. Carrots – meh. Life’s a mystery.
