These intensely fiery pickles are served to spice up plain noodle and tofu dishes. They are best though of as a pickled vegetable-rich Sichuan chilli oil. Use in the same way you would use chopped Sichuan preserved vegetable in recipes. The pickles are a blend of chilli, preserved vetable, cowpea (like a green bean), Chinese cabbage and spices.
When we first tasted them in the office, a pot was devoured almost instantly. These Sichuan chilli pickles are one of the team's firm favourites - stirred into soup at lunch, with instant noodles, or even just to eat alone with white rice when in a hurry.
The same producer Sichuan Gaofuji Food Co Ltd makes a similar, though less spicy, Sichuan preserved fungus which is also worth trying.
