does anyone know where I can get Sichuan peppercorns? The Asian markets don't seem to have them, is there a reliable place? Or is the internet/mail order route better...

  1. Just saw them at Whole Foods Palo Alto

    1. Bought mine at Marina in San Mateo a couple weeks ago. Package says "Szechuna peppercorn", distributed by Yummy Foods Co., San Francisco. Package weighs 114 g. Don't recall the price, but somewhere under $2.
