Terre Exotique’s Batak berry has heady lemon aromas - the Batak equivalent of Chinese Szechuan berry. Harvested in Indonesia by the Batak people, these berries grow in the zanthoxylum acanthopodium bush and are related to Szechuan berries. Also known as Bataks pepper, these berries are used in a traditional dish of Ikan mas arsik, made with wok-fried carps and a ginger & lemongrass sauce.

For everyday use, dry fry the berries and then crush them in a pestle and mortar. Infuse these berries into butter sauces for seafood, sprinkle over roast aubergines and crispy chicken wings, or use them to add a citrus burst to chocolate tortes. 

About Terre Exotique

Terre Exotique works directly with hundreds of specialist farmers and producers around the world – to bring the very best peppers, spices and salts to our tables. The company was founded by Erwann de Kerros, a Breton and seasoned traveller. After tasting pepper in the Penja plantation in Cameroon, Kerros yearned to try other specialist peppers and spices – and Terre Exotique was born.

The company works closely with farmers to preserve natural habitats, and to ensure a sustainable income for local communities. Each spice is carefully packed in tins or glass jars – with no plastic. The metal tins preserve the flavours and aroma of your spice, by protecting them from sunlight. So the ingredients stay at their best for longer.

Ingredients: Zanthoxylum acanthopodium

Storage: Keep at room temperature in a dry place
