Java long pepper is the fruit of the Piper Longum, a liana pepper plant 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 from Java is the fruit of the Piper Longum, a liana about one meter long.
Did you know that? The 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 simmered or crushed dish.
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? There are over 2,000 species in the Piper family.
Java long pepper comes from the Moluccan archipelago located in the east of 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 little known, despite its predominant age over other pepper varieties, 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 was not until the end of the 19th century and the resumption of the spice trade that it regained its former success.
Java long pepper 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 of black pepper, long pepper and honey spread on her body allows to "submit his wife entirely 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 hot, sweet flavour, reminiscent of cinnamon, licorice 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 times.
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 up fried vegetables, soups and all your tomato-based preparations. It is also a pepper that goes perfectly with fresh cheeses, especially goat's cheese.
