Replaced all ground pepper

Pepperberry leaf has a beautiful sharp flavour. I've replaced any ground pepper and use this in my veggie soups, and more recently on a pork rub.
If you love sneezing it's also really good for that when you open up the packet :)

Delicious and versatile

I love the hearty, earthy taste of pepperleaf. For those not familiar with Australian native herbs I'd probably say it's most similar to Italian herbs except with a hint of heat therefore more versatile! I've been putting it in everything - curries, soup, roasted veg, bolognaise... Delicious!

Love it

Delicious version! Drying it out is great too as it kind of reduces that bite and menthol comapred to the fresh leaf.
