Both the leaf, known as Mountain Pepperleaf, and the berries of this Australian native shrub are used as a pepper substitute. Use with care, as they have a heat that builds over a period of 5 minutes after consumption. Use about one-tenth of what you would use of traditional pepper.
Buy pepperberries whole or ground from a reputable supplier. Some berries are freeze-dried, giving an excellent result. Mountain pepperleaf is usually available ground to a powder, though sometimes found whole at markets.
Store in airtight containers away from heat, light and humidity.
