Red Long Pepper, Cambodian, Kampot Variety

Red Long Pepper, Cambodian, Kampot Variety

Believe it or not, long pepper was once the king of spices in Europe, more popular than the round black stuff. It commanded a king’s ransom, too, at three times the price. Due to cost, though, it quickly fell out of favor.

Today, it’s hard to find anybody who has even heard of the stuff. Yes, it’s still pricey, but it sure is good.

After many years of sampling underwhelming long pepper from around the globe, I was blown away by a beautiful variety from Kampot, Cambodia. (Long pepper is native to Java, Indonesia, and the Cambodians brought the vines over.)

Our fresh dried long pepper is hotter and more complex than regular black pepper. Our variety is also a bit different from other long peppers. It’s not picked from the vines until the pepper fruit is completely ripe and red.

When freshly ground, our long pepper releases big, beautiful notes of gingerbread and a complex earthy, woodsy aroma.

We highly recommend buying our special Microplane Spice Mill for grinding this spice. Then you can keep your long pepper at the dinner table so you can grind your long pepper fresh on the spot. Regular pepper mills won't do the job. And a mortar and pestle sort of works, but leaves a lot of waste.

Our long pepper packs a punch, too. It’s got more heat than the regular black stuff.

We encourage you to try long pepper wherever you use regular pepper. I’ve been totally loving it on steaks and meats. It now has a regular place in our kitchen. I even mix it with our Tellicherry Peppercorns sometimes. 

That was a long explanation of long pepper. The short answer is yes!

Red Long Pepper, Cambodian, Kampot Variet

This exceeded expectations by far! Wonderfully aromatic, complex fruity and spicy aspects in perfect balance. The best long pepper I have ever used.

Thomas Daillak

I’d never tried long peppers before so I was excited to get these. They have a chocolatey note to them that was unexpected but awesome. Definitely would buy again!

James Hunter
Not just for sneezing.

Long pepper is unique and delicious seasoning. Telicherry pepper fresh and pungent. Both are well suited to Icelandic salt. Perfect in every way.

Cambodia long red pepper

This pepper is amazing. More hot than black pepper but with a lot more complexity of flavors. While this is no substitute for the capsaicin family of peppers it has its use. Anywhere you would use black pepper you can use this with a resulting flavor enhancement.

Red long cambodian pepper and microplane mill

The microplane mill works perfectly and is fun to use, but the star of the show is the cambodian long pepper which is beautiful when ground and tastes both fruity and hot.
