But what is blackcurrant pepper? It is a spice made from blackcurrant buds that have been ground to a powder. The buds used in this way do not have the sweetness of blackcurrant but add a little "pepperiness" while retaining the slight acidity of blackcurrant.
This spice with its woody and floral notes enhances the "round" taste of the (very) large pieces of figs for a unique and addictive recipe.
