Cubebs, Tailed Pepper. Botanical Name: (Piper cubeba)
Description & Use
Cubeb pepper comes from a vine related to ‘true’ pepper that is native to the Indonesian archipelago. The berries are about the same size as black peppercorns but they have a little spike or tail, hence the other name ‘tailed pepper’. Valued by the Romans, cubebs have a distinct fragrance and characteristic pepper-like flavour. They can be blended with black, white and green peppercorns in a mill or added to dishes instead of conventional pepper. They go particularly well in casseroles and with game, and are often used in flavouring London Dry Gin.
