Mountain Pepper Tin 30g

Provenance

Contrary to what you might think, mountain pepper is not related to the traditional white or black pepper and the herb is actually from the leaves of a small southern sub-alpine tree. These trees are indigenous to the gullies and the woodlands of Victorian and Tasmanian highland and alpine and sub-alpine regions. We use the carefully air dried and ground leaves t bring you this beautiful Australian herb.

Description

The intense flavour of mountain pepper is spicy, pungent and aromatic. The delightful savoury tang of the mountain pepper has as intense hot pepper burst. It’s best to add mountain pepper towards the end of cooking to best retain the flavour and heat. The flavour and spiciness comes from the essential oils in the leaves and if you put the herb in too early the heat from cooking will cause it to dissipate - so add toward the end .

Mountain Pepper can be used in place of ordinary pepper to give all your cooking that unique native food twist. We love using it as great coating/rub on all porterhouse or fillet steak. It works beautifully with fish, seafood and tofu too. Add a zing to mayonnaise, dressings, dips and salsa. Remember - a little goes a long way! Mountain Pepper is antimicrobial and antifungal and very high in active phyto chemicals that help keep free radicals tidied up.

Storing Mountain Pepperl

The dried herb must be kept airtight so as to not absorb moisture from the air. It is best kept in a dark place, such as inside a cupboard to mitigate the effects of oxidisation from light. This is not harmful but will cause the flakes to discolour and lose some of their  phyto-chemical activity.
