  1. Abstinence. There is no substitute that will give you the numbing sensation for which Sichuan Pepper is famous. I have noted it is still for sale in my local Chinese groceries, so stock up while you have the chance!

      I tried to find them but couldn't. Do you know of any stores that still have them in the New York area? Thanks!
