Our Cambodian Salted Pepper Berries might just be our most exciting find of the last couple of years. These are as close to fresh peppercorns from the vine as you may ever get a chance to experience.
The extraordinary pepper berries are soft and firm, not dry and hard like regular peppercorns. They've been perfectly preserved in tasty fleur de sel, sea salt. The berries come to us by way of a small Cambodian pepper plantation that has mastered the salty fermentation technique.
The pepper berries are picked fresh from the vine when they are green and slightly young. They turn black in the sea salt.
We have been supplying these exact same berries to our Michelin Star and James Beard award-winning chefs across the country. They have been a big hit.
Pop a berry in your mouth and within 15 or 20 seconds, the taste and heat bloom. They are warming and flavorful, but won't burn unless you have more than a couple.
Use these pepper berries anywhere you'd use regular black pepper - just a couple of berries goes a long way. Add them to steaks, savory sauces, salads and soups. Wonderful in a gin and tonic or martini. And a great conversation piece with your cheese tray. They are so delicious, you might just find yourself eating them straight from the jar.
An ideal gift for the gourmand in your life. Also available as the ultimate foodie gift packaged in a gift bag with our Italian Black Truffle Sea Salt.

Explosive flavor and umami.
I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect from these pepper treats but I have been using them in all kinds of dishes and am totally thrilled with their taste, crunch and heat. This is a great item for your pantry.
A versatile product that enhances everything that I have put it on. I enjoy eating them out of the container as they seem to act as a breath freshener or at least make your mouth feel refreshed. Great on ice cream too.
I was given a gift certificate to Reluctant Trading for my birthday and deciding to try something totally different. I am so glad I did. These little peppers are soft, scrumptious, and full of a peppery bite. I have put them on a Salads, fresh tomatoes, every kind of soup you can think of, on noodle dishes, on a cheese platter, and I’ve been known to snack on them when I’m cooking.
They are worth a try!
