Java Long Pepper is the fruit of the Piper Longum, a vine pepper native to India. It belongs to the anacardiaceae 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 java long 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.
Java long pepper is harvested before maturity. It is 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.
Java Long Pepper is native to the Moluccan archipelago in eastern Indonesia.
It is one of the first spices to be imported into Europe. In fact, the Indian name "Pippali" is the origin of the words "Pepper" and "Pepper".
Still unknown and this, despite its predominant antiquity over other varieties of pepper, Indonesian long pepper is a rare pepper found in Ayurveda.
The import of long pepper from Java ceased during 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.
The long pepper from Java has the same virtues as the peppers from Piper Longum. It is highly prized in Ayurveda, especially for its ability to increase Agni, which symbolizes digestion and metabolism.
It is also believed to have the following benefits:
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.
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 mashed. It is extremely complicated to grind.
It is one of the few peppers that can withstand long cooking.
It is an atypical, full-bodied and aromatic pepper which finds its place in your salty as well as 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 vegetable stir-fries, soups and all your tomato-based preparations. It is also a pepper that goes perfectly with fresh cheeses, especially goat's cheese.
