A small, very rare pepper, lightly hot, with and inscrutable aroma!
Wild Long Pepper is smaller than common, cultivated long pepper, and has more irregularly shaped berries. It emits a fresh aroma marked by notes of fresh earth and black tea. Its flavor is a little less peppery than regular black pepper with a one-of-a-kind prickly sensation reminiscent of Sichuan peppercorn.
In India, long pepper is used mostly in Ayurvedic medicine, although it is also valued for its culinary properties.
Its exotic aroma is a great way to kick up all sorts of dishes; Wild Long Pepper can also be combined with other peppers and spices to create a unique spice blend.
