  • What is long pepper from Java?

    Java long pepper is the fruit of the Piper Longum, a vine pepper native to India. It belongs to the cashew family.

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

    The long pepper of Java is the fruit of the Piper Longum, a liana about one meter long.

    Did you know that? Java long pepper gets its name from its shape. These are not round berries, but kittens 2 to 4 cm long with scales like pine cones.

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

    Harvest of Java long pepper

    Java long pepper is harvested before maturity. It will be dried in the sun until it darkens in colour. This can sometimes take on reddish shades.

    Did you know that? There are more than 2,000 species in the Piper family.


    The origins of Java long pepper

    Java long pepper is native to the Moluccan archipelago in eastern Indonesia.

    It is one of the first spices to have been imported to Europe. In fact, the Indian name "Pippali" is the origin of the words "Pepper" and "Pepper".

    Still little known, despite its predominant age over other varieties of pepper, Indonesian long pepper is a rare pepper, traces of which can be found in Ayurveda.

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

    Other uses

    The long pepper from Java has the same virtues as the peppers from the Piper Longum. It is highly prized in Ayurveda, particularly for its ability to increase Agni, which symbolizes digestion and metabolism.

    It also has the following benefits:

    • It helps fight hypertension
    • It is good for muscle development
    • It is effective in treating asthma symptoms
    • It relieves cough
    • He's anti-stress

    Anecdote: During one of my many trips to India, a Yogi master told me about the aphrodisiac benefits (only for women) of this spice. In the Kamasutra, it is said that a mixture made up of black pepper, long pepper and honey spread on his body makes it possible to "completely subject his wife to his will". With good hearing.

    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 flavour, reminiscent of cinnamon, liquorice and green anise, is accompanied by a spiciness equivalent to classic black pepper.

    Java long pepper is eaten whole in brine or canned, grated and crushed. It is extremely complicated to grind it.

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

    It is an atypical, full-bodied and aromatic pepper that can be used in both sweet and savoury recipes. It goes perfectly with strong meats such as lamb and is an essential element in a marinade. Indonesian long pepper can also be added whole in a fish papillote.

    Crushed, it spices vegetable pan-fried dishes, soups and all your tomato-based preparations. It is also a pepper that goes perfectly with fresh cheeses, especially goat's cheese.

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

    Un goût et une odeur qui ne sont pas à la hauteur des poivres longs que je connais, je ne sais pas dire exactement mais un léger goût qui m’écœure. Fonctionne bien quand même pour parfumer les sauces et cet arrière goût disparaît.

    Comment from David Vanille the 12/08/2020
    Bonjour Kimo, Chaque poivre long, variété, origine et terroir sont différents. Celui ci est un poivre Long typique de Java. Vous avez reçu le même lot que mes derniers avis. C'est une question de goût cela dit. Au plaisir, David
