Sichuan Peppercorns, ideas?

Honeychan | Oct 13, 200709:54 PM     6

I was thrilled to find a jar of Sichuan peppercorns out shopping yesterday. They are so unique, with the way they add a "cool" yet spicy kick, and leave (at least mine, anyways) my mouth tingly-fresh. Very addictive.

What are you your favorite ways to use this spice? I also (finally!) purchaed a mortar and pestle for my spices, do the peppercorns need to be ground for maximum taste? My gut feeling is that if left whole, they will impart a milder taste to the food.

I'm really excited to use this in dishes, and want ideas on how best to utilize their flavor.

Thank you so much in advance!
