Discovered in South America, this false pepper was reported on the island of Madagascar in the 19th century. Crushed or whole, these pink berries with a resinous fragrance, combine with salmon, carrot soup or courgette tagliatelle. Also, delicious in marinades and welcome addition to gin & tonic!
Pink pepper or pink berry is native to Reunion Island. The pink berries were known in the 17th century under the name of "Bourbon pepper" because they were cultivated on Reunion Island which bore the name of "Bourbon Island". Fruits of Schinus terebinthifolia, these berries with sweet and slightly peppery flavours originate from Madagascar. They are sorted by the expert hands of Malagasy women. Only the red and mature berries are selected for their aromatic power.
Gently crush these berries between your fingers to release their vegetable notes of coriander and burnt juniper before adding them to your dish. On the palate, the pink berries have a soft texture and slightly bitter and woody flavours.
They go perfectly with marinated salmon, poached fish, white asparagus or fresh goat cheese.

For the shipping fresh and frozen goods we use high quality mixed recyclable insulated packaging to keep your products perfect through the courier network.
To keep frozen goods at the correct temperature we use a safe alternative to dry ice. These gel packs freeze to a temperature of -45° and stay frozen for an extended period of time. Completely food safe and fully recyclable/reusable.
The vast majority of shipments arrive frozen but we cannot guarantee this. In the event that your order has defrosted it should still be at a very low temperature when you receive it and therefore fine to put in your freezer. Refreezing is only unsafe if the product has reached 8°c. It is worth mentioning that supermarkets routinely sell defrosted food as "fresh", with the advice that it may be frozen when you get home.
All frozen products arrive in extremely high quality, fully insulated packaging.
All fresh truffles are sent in a foil resealable pack with an absorbent paper. This is suitable for storing in your fridge. If storing truffles for more than a few days we recommend wrapping them in paper towel or using a Tuberpac. Fresh truffles are always best consumed as soon as possible.
