Pepper Harvest Trip • The Pepper Farms • Day 7 • Wayanad India

Posted on February 09, 2017 by Scott Eirinberg

Day 7, Thursday, Wayanad, India

We spent three days in Wayanad watching the pickers pick pepper. (And no, none of them were named Peter.)

While I had been to the Wayanad plantations a few years ago, it was prior to the harvest. I visited a much different farm where about 95% of the crop was peppercorns.

Days 5 & 6, Tuesday and Wednesday, Wayanad, India

Mumbai and Kannur were so interesting, I almost forgot the real reason we came to India - to see the pepper harvest.

Since I started selling spices a few years ago, I’ve always wanted to come back to India to learn more about the black stuff that sits on nearly every kitchen table. Most of us use pepper on a daily basis, but few have any idea where or how it’s grown.

Alan and I just checked into our hotel in Mumbai, India. It’s 2:00 A.M. Took 24 hours to get here including the layover in Frankfurt, where we unfortunately didn’t even get to eat frankfurters.

Before heading down south for the pepper harvest, we’re going to be spending a few days exploring Mumbai. I talked to Chef Troy MacLarty of Bollywood Theater, our partner in the Masalas and Chai, and he gave me a list interesting things to do.

This is Alan’s first trip to India. (Alan is my good friend and a professional photographer.) I can’t wait to see and share his photos.   

My favorite thing to do in India is to just walk the streets. 

It is a place that is hard to fully describe. But that won’t stop us from trying.
