Cubeb Pepper / Peppercorns - Specialist Spice - Non Organic. Steenbergs Cubeb Pepper, Piper cubeba, is a great and difficult to find specialist pepper. Cubeb pepper, or tailed pepper (or even older Java pepper), comes from a vine native to Java and other Indonesian islands.
The cubeb pepper berries look like cartoon bombs that you might see in Tintin books cubeb pepper berries are black and of a similar size to black peppercorns but with a 3 - 6mm long stalk sticking out of one end.
The aroma of cubeb pepper is fresh and peppery, while the flavour is hot, pungent and pine-like. Although popular for many years as a substitute for true pepper, it is seldom seen in cuisine nowadays save for being a key component of Steenbergs Ras al-hanut spice blend - a throwback to the times that spice trading was dominated by Arab merchants.
