What is cubeb pepper?

Cubeb pepper is also known as tail pepper because of its shape. It has a grain topped by a small tail. This pepper is produced in Indonesia on the islands of Java or Sumatra. Although it is named as such, it is not a pepper. This is also the case with Sichuan pepper or Sansho pepper since these spices are not from the piper negrum family. In reality, it is a piper cubeba type berry. This pepper is very appreciated by Asians who use it massively in their cooking. If it was imported by the Arabs in the Middle Ages in Europe, it disappeared for several centuries and is still very confidential in our country. It does not have the reputation of a Szechuan pepper or a Timut pepper. On the other hand, the Arabs continue to use it, this berry is very present in North African cuisine.

You can also imagine it with a baked chicken with pepper and honey to merge all oriental cuisines. It is the interest of this spice that offers you a real journey while staying at the table.
