Description & Use

Cubeb pepper comes from a vine related to ‘true’ pepper that is native to the Indonesian archipelago and grows in other countries such as Madagascar. 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.

Produce of Indonesia packed in Australia.
