What is cubeb pepper?

Cubeb pepper is also called tailed 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 like this, it is not a pepper. This is also the case for Sichuan pepper or Sansho pepper, as these spices are not members of the piper negrum family. In fact, it is a berry of the piper cubeba type. 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 has disappeared for several centuries and is still very confidential here. It does not have the reputation of a Sichuan pepper or a Timut pepper. On the other hand, the Arabs continue to use it, this berry is very present in the Maghreb cuisine.

Thus, this berry can be added to an oriental lentil soup or a delicious eggplant caviar that you will serve as an aperitif on a lightly toasted bread. You can also imagine it with a baked chicken with pepper and honey to merge all oriental cuisines. This is the interest of this spice that offers you a real trip while staying at the table. Of course, the Asian cuisine is quite appropriate to the use of cubeb pepper. It comes to perfume a shrimp curry with Cantonese rice. It can also be used in desserts to enhance a fruit salad or a fruit and chocolate pie.
