These amazing little dried black Pepperberries pack a really “really” hot chilli punch

So many times when I’ve been giving cooking demo’s or talking about natives and sending around samples for people to smell and try, I advise not to eat the pepperberries straight out and what happens, of course, there’s always someone!…and then I’m treated to the drama of watering eyes and a hand trying to fan out a burning mouth.

These little guys are really hot hot hot, it firsts hits on the tip of your tongue which goes numb…good party trick I guess if you’re feeling that way with your friends, but saying that, the benefits of having pepperberries in your pantry to create a bit of Australian native bushfood heat are they are great for your health, taste fantastic and go with any dish, what’s not to like?
