The Brazilian black pepper that I present to you comes from the original region of pepper production: Espirito Santo. The variety that I propose to you is a pepper that not only respects my imperatives in terms of quality and flavours, but is also the perfect reflection of what this Brazilian black pepper is, and this, in the respect of traditions and origins. This variety of ground black pepper from Brazil comes from the Piper Nigrum plant.
Brazilian black pepper grows on an evergreen vine. Some can reach 4 m high. This pepper plant is part of the piperaceae. Its creepers produce bunches on which the pepper berries are found.
The difference in colour between the peppers results from their level of maturity at harvest.
Did you know that? The world production of black pepper is around 400,000 tons. Brazil is the 4th largest pepper producing country with about 40,000 tons of pepper produced per year. Today, Brazil exports up to 85% of its black pepper production.
It was in the 17th century, on the docks of the ports of Salvador de Bahia and Porto Seguro that the first Piper nigrum plants arrived in Brazil. They were introduced into the country by the Portuguese.
The mountainous and tropical climate of the Bahia region was perfect for developing pepper plantations. They first developed in the Bahia region and then in Espirito Santo.
Black pepper has medicinal properties.
Did you know that? Black pepper is a slimming ally. Its action on fats is verified.
On this selection of black pepper, the visual was not the most important thing for me. Unlike a Kampot, which has to be immaculate, I really wanted something more "original", simple and very typical. Here, you erase again everything you thought you knew, close your eyes and let yourself be guided by your heart and your palate.
That's how I chose this batch of Espirito Santo Black Pepper.
This black pepper with a warm palate will quickly become the pepper of your daily life. It will allow you to discover a "fresh" quality.
An inseparable companion of salt, you can use it in all types of savoury dishes: meats, fish, vegetables, sauces, cold cuts..
It will do wonders added generously to breadcrumbs or mixed with hazelnuts, then used as breadcrumbs to bread chicken, cheese or tofu.
It is the star ingredient of Italian pepper pasta, called cacio e pepe, and pepper steak, but it is also the perfect accompaniment to your duck breasts, shrimps or mushrooms.
It is very suitable for stewed dishes, provided that it is not added too early to preserve the flavours of the other ingredients.
It is preferable to add ground black pepper at the end of cooking, especially for dishes that must simmer for more than two hours
Tip! To obtain a really fragrant pepper to your taste, you can make a mixture of several origins for your pepper plant as with Nepalese Timut pepper with notes of Yuzu and Grapefruit.
A gourmet starter that will delight cheese lovers! Take a scoop of mozzarella or a soft cheese of the "Abbey" type. Roll it in an egg yolk, then in breadcrumbs that you will have salted and spiced with my powdered Brazilian black pepper. Cook in hot oil until the breadcrumbs are golden brown. Serve with a salad with vinaigrette. Delicious! This cheese starter can also be made with a strong cheese: Munster or Herve.
A Chinese recipe in which black pepper powder is the ingredient that gives it all its character. Make a simple soup with young onions, bok choy and Chinese cabbage. Spice with ground black pepper. Dip the ravioli stuffed with pork meat. Cook for 5 minutes over high heat. Serve.
A zero-calorie fruit dessert that seduces with the naturally sweet taste of strawberries and the slightly spicy hint of black pepper powder. Cut your strawberries. Make a strawberry coulis with half of them and pepper it with my Brazil black pepper powder. Serve the strawberries quartered in a bowl and add the coulis. Place in the fridge. Serve chilled.
Brazilian black pepper is best stored in an airtight container. Prefer a place away from light and dry.
