Cubeb Berries

Rarely known in the west, Cubeb has experienced a recent resurgence with spice aficionados as a delightful exotic spice. Also known as Cubeb Berries, tailed pepper, tailed Cubebs and Java Pepper, Cubeb is native to the Spice Islands and is now harvested primarily in Indonesia.

Cubeb works well in combination with bay, cardamom, cinnamon, rosemary, sage, thyme and turmeric. Treat this spice the same way you would peppercorns, grinding only what you need at the time, as they quickly lose flavor shortly after grinding.
