The preservation of cubeb pepper, like that of many other spices, is based on three essential principles:

  1. Protection against humidity:   Cubeb pepper 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. Keep away from light and heat:  Cubeb pepper 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 cubeb 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.
