It is on the hills near Muntok that this pepper is cultivated in the purest of traditions. It grows on a creeper and is picked by hand by local producers. Then the peppercorns are placed in the surrounding streams so that the peel of the peppercorns disappears. Then the white Muntok pepper is spread on the trampled ground to remove the last pieces of skin. Washed again, they are then dried in the sun to obtain this beautiful colour.

White Muntok pepper, like all peppers, is known for its various virtues. First of all it is a perfect ally for your digestion as it stimulates the secretion of gastric juices. The piperine it contains helps to fight against depression. Pepper is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
I deliver my white Muntok pepper in a resealable airtight bag. I advise you to keep it away from light and moisture, in a cupboard or drawer. You can also put it immediately in an opaque pepper pot to grind it.
