Olivier Rœllinger's words
This long pepper grows in the hills of north Kerala in India at an altitude of 700 meters.
It has milk chocolate flavor notes and goes well with both chocolate desserts and fruit compotes.
Wild long peppers (piper longum) grow in northern and southern India and are cultivated in Sri Lanka and Cambodia, The wheat-shaped berries were used in European cuisines long before true peppercorns and chile peppers arrived in the 16th century. The spice is worth revisiting today, and we use it in our ‘Poivre des Mondes’ pepper blend. In India, long peppers are used in ayurvedic remedies.
