origin: Indonesia

Also known as Balinese or Bengal pepper, long pepper looks like a small thin catkin and can be grated or crushed. The long peppers have a beautiful sweet scent and a very hot, almost numbing heat that belies the innocent initial sweetness. Apparently ancient ayurverdic teachings prize long pepper as being capable of increasing the semen in a man and thus his strength!

uses: Add crushed long pepper to a lamb stew or to season a spicy soup. Experiment by replacing black pepper with crushed or ground long pepper at the table or in your cooking, the musky sweet flavour seems to go really well with rich, creamy or buttery food in particular.
