I received the Salted Cambodian Pepper Berries and couldn't resist tasting one right out of the jar! OMG...the combination of clean black pepper flavor and the sea salt is amazing. In fact, I have not yet used them in cooking; I just keep dipping into that jar to eat a few at a time and savor the taste. This is a great product, I just hesitate to blunt that taste by combining it with other ingredients in a cooked dish. Perhaps sprinkled over a salad would be best IMHO; the snap you get in your mouth when biting down on one would not be lost then!
We've enjoyed other products from the RTE, but these pepper berries are beyond enjoyable; they seem dangerous. I hope they aren't *actually* dangerous, because they are certainly addictive. I've put them on toast and suchlike, but, honestly, I mainly just eat them from the jar. I limit myself to two. Well, two twice. They combine the pop of salmon roe with the funkiness of fermentation, the hit of spice, and the physiological reward of salt. They might be my request for the last course of my last meal if I ever am on death row. (Which I could be for killing anyone who threatens my continued consumption of my salted Cambodian pepper berries. Just saying, Scott.)
Unique product, great service
I haven't even put these in a dish yet... I just eat 'em right out of the jar!
Delicious, piquant, unique! We love the salted pepper berries. Our current issue is what foods they do NOT complement!
