  • What is Java Long Pepper?

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

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

    Java long pepper is the fruit of Piper Longum, a vine with a length of about one meter.

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

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

    Harvesting Java long pepper

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

    Did you know that? Piper family: The Piper family includes more than 2,000 species.


    The origins of Java long pepper

    Java long pepper originates from the Moluccan archipelago in eastern Indonesia.

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

    Still unknown, despite its predominant age over other varieties of pepper, Indonesian long pepper is a rare pepper with traces in Ayurveda.

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

    Other uses

    Java long pepper has the same properties as peppers from Piper Longum. It is very popular in Ayurveda, especially for its ability to increase the Agni which symbolizes digestion and metabolism.

    It is also said to have the following benefits:

    • It helps to fight high blood pressure
    • It is good for muscle development
    • It is effective in treating asthma symptoms
    • It relieves coughing
    • It is 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 Kamasutra, it is said that a mixture of black pepper, long pepper and honey spread on his body allows him to "submit his wife entirely to his will". To a good hearing.

    How to use Java long pepper in cooking?

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

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

    Java long pepper is consumed 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 times.

    It is an atypical, full-bodied and aromatic pepper that finds its place in both your salty and sweet 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 up vegetable dishes, soups and all your tomato-based preparations. It is also a pepper that goes perfectly with fresh cheeses, especially goat cheese.

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