Black Jungle Pepper - India
Grown in the remote mountain region of Kerala, where you will still find wild elephants and buffalo, this organic jungle pepper offers a sensational taste experience and an amazing aroma. The crop yield is low in these traditional varieties and it has a reputation for having a fine aroma and a very distinguished taste. It is a first class pepper. Pressing the berries by hand in several passes contributes to the levels of essential oils in the pepper being significantly higher than for other types of pepper. After harvesting, the pepper is sun dried. The Indian producer groups receive an additional 50% above the standard market price for this unique quality. Black pepper has a biting, hot flavour suitable for seasoning an immense variety of dishes.
