Java Long Pepper is a close relative of black pepper and has a similar taste, with a strong biting aftertaste. This pepper was an important spice in Europe before the European discovery of the New World. Long pepper has sweet and fragrant aroma, contradicting its hot, lingering, and numbing taste.
Slightly sweet and aromatic, with a hot peppery flavor.
Pleasantly hot and more pungent than regular black pepper, this aromatic Javan Long Pepper is native to Indonesia. Grown year round, the best long pepper comes from the island of Madura, where the dryness and balanced ph of the soil, along with perfect weather conditions, conspire to produce the largest fruits and leaves. As soon as they mature, our long pepper is harvested and immediately sun-dried to capture its unique flavor.
