Su Spicy Chili Crisp
This mala chili crisp is produced in small batches in Taipei under the name Su. Prepared using a traditional technique that has been passed down through generations, it is superbly complex and aromatic with a tingly finish. An oil of one-hundred sensations.
This is a Sichuan style chili crisp, featuring brown peppercorn for that MaLa hot and numbing taste. It is an essential ingredient for dishes like Ma Po Tofu and Red Oil Wontons. You'll be surprised at how well it works as a finishing oil for almost anything. Stir well before using to get plenty of crispy sediment.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Yun Hai 雲海 offers a selection of premium ingredients for Chinese and Taiwanese cooking. We source directly from artisans, farms, and soy sauce breweries in Taiwan. Terrain, technique, history, and humanity come together in the traditional foods we distribute. Yun Hai 雲海 means “sea of clouds”—it describes a phenomenon that happens high in the mountains of Central Taiwan. In the afternoon, the clouds settle lower than the mountain peaks and cover the land in a blanket of foggy mist. This atmospheric effect is important for growers of Gao Shan Cha 高山茶, or high mountain tea. The dew and moisture creates a climate that makes the tea tender, flavorful, and delicate. To us, it symbolizes the natural beauty of Taiwan and its populations.
