Tasmanian Pepper Berries, also known as mountain pepper, is a native spice to Australia. It has a slightly numbing effect, like a cooler Sichuan pepper, and a sweet berry flavor that builds in heat. The berries are hollow are are easy to crush. They also absorb moisture in the air so store in an air tight container. If you find they have softened, simply dry them out in an oven at the lowest setting.
Use the berries as a finishing spices or for quick cooking; it will lose the intensity of its flavor as it cooks. Sprinkle on to cheese, use as a quick marinade for seafood, or sprinkle on top of desserts like berries and cream.
