Timut berries resemble peppercorns with intense aromas of grapefruit and dried herbs. This berry doesn't sting or burn as a pepper might, but it does leave a slight tingling or even a subtle anaesthetic effect on the tip of the tongue.
Harvested in the Kathmandu region of Nepal, this "false pepper" is a cousin of the Sichuan berry found in China, or also Japanese and Korean sansho.
Its citrus flavours make this "grapefruit pepper" a spice that will enhance your fruit salads, and any cooked or raw fish. A few infused berries will subtly flavor a whipped cream, panna cotta, or cheesecake.
