Sansho, also called Prickly Ash, is one of the oldest spices in human history. Bright, floral, and citrusy with a subtle heat, it is related to Sichuan Peppercorn and has a similarly numbing quality. What makes Yamatsu's special is that it's a delicate blend of three varieties of Sansho: Yamakura, Asakura and Budo, which together produce a spice with unparalleled depth of flavor. A classic yakitori seasoning, it pairs especially well with grilled meats and BBQ eel. We recommend keeping it in the freezer when not using to preserve freshness.
