An herb that comes from the young leaves and berries of a Japanese prickly ash tree named Sansho. The leaves have a refreshing mint-like flavor and are used as a garnish in Japanese cooking while the dried berries are ground into a powdered seasoning known as Sansho powder. The same seasoning in China is known as Szechuan Pepper. This seasoning adds a distinct flavor to fish dishes, stews and soups.
