Indian long pepper / Pipli
The hipster pepper if there ever was one. All sleeve tattoos and a waxed mustache. It lives in the Capitol Hill district of Seattle by way of India and Indonesia.
The aroma is musky with hints of pine and chile pepper that’s gone a bit old. The flavor is rather reminiscent of black pepper, but becomes numbing and sharp afterwards. It’s highly recommended that you start slowly with long pepper as it can be a bit jarring.
Speaking of jarring, long pepper is a unique way to perk up homemade pickles and preserves. For more immediate meals, add whole to stews and curries and fish out before serving; they’ll imbue the dish with a forest-like peppery kick.
