  • What is black pepper from Brazil?

    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.

    Harvesting black pepper from Brazil

    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 differences between peppers: white, green, black

    The difference in colour between the peppers results from their level of maturity at harvest.

    • Black pepper is actually a pepper harvested when the berry is still red. It is by drying that it takes the black colour. It offers powerful aromas.
    • Green pepper is a pepper picked young, when it is not mature. More fruity and less spicy than black pepper, it can be preserved in brine.
    • White pepper is a red pepper that has been soaked in salt water. It is rubbed to remove its skin and that's how it takes on its white colour. It is not very strong.

    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.


    The origins of Brazilian black pepper

    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.

    Other uses of pepper

    Black pepper has medicinal properties.

    It relieves:

    • Toothache
    • Decongesting colds by decongesting the nose
    • Digestion problems
    • Gastric reflux problems
    • Inflammations

    Did you know that? Black pepper is a slimming ally. Its action on fats is verified.


    How do I use my Brazilian black pepper powder in cooking?

    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.

    ce que je cherche dans un poivre c'est avant tout l'arôme intense qu'il dégage avant la force, et celui ci est très aromatique
