What is long smoked pepper?

The Timiz long smoked pepper seduces and intrigues first and foremost by its shape. When you think of pepper, you can immediately imagine pretty round peppercorns. This Ethiopian pepper is quite different, it is similar in shape to the long pepper from Java. However, while it resembles its Asian cousin, this African pepper has different flavours. This long smoked pepper comes from the piper capense, a pepper plant that grows freely from the forests of the Bonga region of Ethiopia. It likes tropical climates, it is here that it develops beautiful fruits that will perfume all your cooking. It comes in a long form and differs from another long pepper, the Selim pepper, by the presence of small seeds on its surface. This pepper is quite fragile, the seeds tend to detach easily, I advise you to handle this very beautiful product with the greatest care It is a group of Ethiopians, the Manjos, who harvest Timiz pepper It benefits from a protected geographical indication, the government has chosen to encourage its development to increase local economic activity and offer a production much more ecological than that of coffee, a product widely cultivated in Ethiopia.

The harvest of long smoked pepper

So the Timiz grows in the piper capense. This endemic pepper grows naturally at an altitude of 1,000 m in the forests of south-western Ethiopia. The manual harvest carried out by the Manjos requires a real know-how which is transmitted from generation to generation. When this long pepper reaches maturity, it is harvested and then dried over the hearths of local homes, which is what gives it its inimitable smoky taste.
