Szechuan Dipping Sauce
- Lightly toast 1 T Szechuan peppercorns in a cast iron skillet until just barely starting to smoke. These are not spicy peppercorns. They have more of a clove like flavor.
- In a sauce pan combine toasted peppercorns with 1 cup rice vinegar and warm.
- Soak overnight and store in a jar for future seasoning uses.
Try it in a Vinaigrette dressing or sprinkle over steamed or braised greens.
