Timur pepper, quite simply a berry native to the highlands of Nepal and which is an aromatic treasure from Asia, stands out as a versatile spice that can transform your culinary creations. Comparable to the famous Sichuan pepper, it finds its place perfectly in the art of Asian seasoning. In addition, these two peppers complement each other harmoniously and can be substituted for one another with ease. You should know that its subtle aroma makes it ideal for stews and exotic fruit salads. But be careful not to dose too much because if you add too much it will have an anesthetic effect. Like pepper, it’s the dosage that’s everything.

If you are looking for a way to add an exceptional touch to your dishes based on fish, shellfish or scallops cooked in foil, Timut bay is your ally of choice. Its aroma, both intense and unique, gives it the status of a first-rate ingredient for your marinades, whether to enhance tender pieces of beef or juicy pieces of chicken, or to flavor your sauce bases.

In everyday cooking, the Timut berry is added at the last moment, reduced to powder, sprinkled directly on your plates or incorporated into your vegetable preparations, giving it an explosion of flavors. We love it in wok recipes.

Like many peppers and false peppers, Timut berries pair wonderfully with dark chocolate, creating an intriguing and unforgettable combination for your desserts and pastries.

Finally, if you want to surprise your guests and add an exotic note to your fruit salads, simply add a very small quantity of Timut berry to awaken their taste buds with a slight kick.

You can make a candied lemon with it. The citrus fruits you will trail in this recipe come from the bay. 

Don't hesitate to add a little long red Kampot pepper to your recipe, it's a perfect match.

The conservation of Timut berry, like that of many other spices, is based on three essential principles:

  1. Protection against humidity: Timut berry should be stored in a dry place, protected from humidity. Humidity can alter the flavor of the spice and encourage the formation of mold, which would compromise its quality. It is recommended to store it in an airtight container to avoid contact with humidity.

  2. Away from light and heat: Timut Bay should be protected from direct sunlight and excessive heat. Heat can cause the essential oils that give the spice its characteristic aroma to break down. It is therefore best to store it in a cool, dark place, such as a cupboard or kitchen drawer.

  3. Using an airtight container: To preserve the freshness and flavor of the Timut berry as much as possible, it is recommended to store it in an airtight container, such as a glass jar or food-grade plastic container. Make sure the container seals tightly to avoid exposure to air, which can cause flavor loss over time.
