Timut Peppercorns, a relative of Szechuan Peppercorns, have a bright grapefruit-like citrus aroma as well as the mild numbing sensation that Szechuan Peppercorns impart to food. Timut Peppercorns (sometimes referred to as “Timur Peppercorns”) are a close and rare relative of the Szechuan Peppercorn and originate in Nepal. They are the dried black berry husks from the prickly ash shrub family. Timut Peppercorns have a bright citrusy flavor that is reminiscent of grapefruit, with a slight heat that has a mild numbing effect on the lips and tongue, due to the presence of the chemical compound herculin.
