Our 3-year-old Pixian doubanjiang is the pinnacle of traditional Sichuan food. Made by hand since 1688 this Yi Feng He Hao douban is the premium product of Sichuan Pixian Douban Co.

 

Made in the Pidu district of Chengdu, the Doubanjiang is a fermented mix of broad (fava) beans, er jing tiao chilies, salt and wheat flour, and nothing more, no other ingredients, additives or preservatives. They are a pure concentration of spicy, salty, natural umami. 

 

The 3-year aged Doubanjiang is aged in small batches in 3-foot-tall earthenware pots. Each day the lids are removed, the doubanjiang is stirred by hand and then left to bask in the rural Sichuan sun and air, soaking in the microbes of its unique terroir.

 

This 1,000-plus days of careful, hand made aging makes for an extremely complex taste. While young douban is sharp, the older version is funkier and more well rounded, with layer upon layer of soulful flavor that lingers far after the initial hit of heat and salt.
