A wild relative of true pepper that grows only in Madagascar, voatsiperifery berries are smaller than standard black peppercorns with a long comet-like stem. This variety of pepper has an intensely herbal, floral and citrusy aroma and flavor that lends itself well to recipes with a more delicate flavor profile like flatbreads, fish, and vegetables.
Contains: Black peppercorns.
