Szechwan (Szechuan) Peppercorns

  • c

I would like to buy Szechwan (Szechuan) Peppercorns in Toronto, preferably in Chinatown. Where can I buy them? Thanks.

  1. Try House of Spice in Kensington Market (on Augusta).

    1. I remember reading on the Boston Chowhound boards that szechuan peppercorns were no longer imported to the states for agricultural reasons(??). It may be the same case in canada, not sure. If you're finding it real difficult to find them, that's likely the case.

      In any case you can try to walk into one of the larger chinese supermarkets on spadina to checkout their spice section.

        Saw them yesterday at Pusateri's on Bay at Bloor (at ridiculous price).
