What is Java long pepper?

Java long pepper is the fruit of the Piper Longum, a vine pepper tree native to India. It is a member of the Anacardiaceae family.

Today, it grows wild on the island of Java in Indonesia and in the Himalayas.

The Java long pepper is the fruit of the Piper Longum, a vine of a length approaching the meter.

Did you know that? The long pepper of Java takes its name from its shape. They are not round berries, but catkins of 2 to 4 cm long with scales like pine cones.

David Vanille's choice: I have chosen to present a long java pepper with an original flavor that is less pungent and sweeter than Asian peppers. To be eaten grated, like a nutmeg, whole in a simmered dish or crushed.

Harvesting long pepper from Java

The long pepper of Java is harvested before maturity. It will be dried in the sun until its color darkens. It can sometimes take on reddish tones.

Did you know? the Piper family includes more than 2,000 species.


The origins of Java long pepper

The Java long pepper is native to the Moluccas archipelago located in eastern Indonesia.

It is one of the first spices to be imported into Europe. Moreover, the Indian name "Pippali" is the origin of the words "Pepper" and "Poivre".

Still unknown and this, despite its predominant age on the other varieties of pepper, the long pepper of Indonesia is a rare pepper which we find traces in Ayurveda.

The import of long pepper from Java stopped with the collapse of the Roman Empire. It was not until the end of the 19th century and the resumption of the spice trade that it regained its former success.

How to use Java Long Pepper in cooking?

Indonesian Long Pepper has a very original aromatic palette, less pungent and even sweeter than other peppers from Asia.

Its very warm, sweet flavor, reminiscent of cinnamon, licorice and green anise, is accompanied by a spiciness equivalent to classic black pepper.

The long pepper of Java is consumed whole in brine or canned, grated to the crushed. It is extremely complicated to grind.

It is one of the few peppers that can withstand long cooking times.

It is an atypical pepper, full-bodied and aromatic, which finds its place in both savory and sweet recipes. It goes perfectly with strong meats like lamb and is an essential element in a marinade. Indonesian long pepper can also be added whole to a fish bake.

Crushed, it can be used to spice up pan-fried vegetables, soups and all your tomato-based preparations. It is also a pepper that goes perfectly with fresh cheese, especially goat cheese.

Tip: Want to surprise your guests? Place your long java pepper and a grater on the table. Your guests will be able to add pepper to their dish as they wish.
