Long pepper

Long Pepper has been around in Europe for many many years: Some spice historians believe it
was readily available in Roman times for it’s medical properties, as well as being popular with
gourmands and gourmets. Although the more usual black pepper then dominated the market,
it is now making a bit of a come-back. 


There are various flavours found in the long peppers - cardamom, nutmeg, fine chocolate, and
a hint of coriander, amongst others and they can be used as an alternative to pepper. Often used
in pickles, it has remained a favourite ingredient in Indian, Indonesian and Malay cuisine.
Being more diverse and pungent than normal black pepper, it is one of the rock stars of the pepper world.

The plant Piper longum is a flowering vine that is a bit of a climber, and the pepper itself is
thought to have aphrodisiac qualities, when applied to the skin with additional highly
secretive ingredients.
We suggest you just crush it with a mortar and pestle and allow the sharpness to infuse into
game stews, curries, vegetarian, and slow food recipes.

4-6 cm Long Pepper

The longer version of the Long pepper has more sweet and earthy overtones. It gives off an
aroma of cinnamon and reminds you that the Christmas season is not far off, even though it
might only be March.
Long pepper can be broken down with a mortar and pestle or chopped
into pieces for a spice mill.

As well as using it to season food or added to sauces, broths, it also works well as a rub. It
has a slightly sweet floral scent, with a bit of a bite - especially if cooked for a long time.
