Tasmanian Mountain Pepper
Tasmanian Mountain Pepper has an outstanding hot peppery bush flavour. It's used in soups, savoury dishes and compliments all meat dishes. All parts of the tree can be eaten but the berries are only produced on the female plant. To get the berries you do need a male plant. Finely chopped leaves are commonly used in cooking and make a great garnish, but beware - it's hot. Dried leaves are even hotter! To dry the leaves, pick and place in a dish in a sunny spot and leave until dry and brittle.
