Will Szechuan pepper work in a pepper mill?
I've just bought some whole Szechuan pepper (which apparently isn't a real member of the pepper family) in an Asian supermarket.
It is labelled Zanthoxylum, which fits in with what my Web search says it should be.
Anyway, my pepper mill (a Peugeot) happily grinds a mixture of white, black, and red peppercorns. And the red ones aren't "real" pepper either.
My question is this: when my pepper mill is nearly empty, can I blend in some of the Szechuan pepper with the other types of pepper, or might this clog up the mill and leave me frustrated?
