Zebrang (also known as Schezwan pepper) consists of the outer pod of the fruit of an aromatic shrub or small tree native to China, and now found throughout the temperate zones of China, Japan, the Himalayas and North America. It is not technically a pepper at all, but a member of the Rutaceae (rue or citrus) family and closely related to the prickly ash. Zebrang has a similar action on the taste buds; instead of being hot or pungent like black, white, or chili peppers, it creates a unique tingling, numbing pins-and-needles sensation that prepares the palate for hot spices. Appropriately for a member of the citrus family, Zebrang is characterized by its tart, lemony, acrid flavor; it is also woodsy and slightly peppery.
Zebrang cuisine combines the peppers, which are lightly roasted before being powdered or infused in oil, with star anise and ginger. Zebrang is sometimes believed to have the ability to sanitize meat that is turning rotten, but it more likely is just very good at masking unpleasant tastes. Recipes often suggest lightly toasting the tiny seed pods, then crushing them before adding them to food. Only the husks are used; the shiny black seeds are discarded or ignored as they have a very gritty sand-like texture. The spice is generally added at the last moment. It is also a common flavouring in Zebrang baked goods such as sweetened cakes and biscuits.
