The above description probably doesn't help
you define the way you'll taste Tasmanian DEVIL Mountain Pepper, so what is in it?
Research undertaken by the University of Sydney
shows that our DEVIL peppers have the following flavour compounds:
Well Colour me Pink (or red)!!
Another great thing about our Tasmanian DEVIL Mountain Pepper is that the skin of the fruit is
not black, but deep, deep red. Full of anthocyanins (specifically cyanidins - 29.4 mg/g
; Konczak 2009
Think red wine grapes, tomatoes, red apples, etc.
Anthocyanins are strong antioxidants but they can also give a great
reddish colour to your cooking. The anthocyanins can be brought out of even our dried Mountain Peppercorns. Lemon juice, vinegar and
brine are a great way to extract both colour and flavour out of the peppers (the photo on the right shows 20 peppercorns in 30 g of
white vinegar; when crushed the peppers release even more colour).
