Szechuan Sauce

Spicy, sweet, thick and dark - this is a belter of a sauce!



Szechuan peppercorns - or any good peppercorns

dark soy sauce

chillies - fresh or dried



rice vinegar

Xiaoxing rice wine - or Mirin - or dry sherry

sesame oil

honey - you can use agave or syrup; I'm using golden syrup, maple would do, but it does have a very distinctive taste
