SUGGESTED USELong pepper has a more complex flavour than black pepper, it’s more like a blend of flavours than one single spice; the peppers can be added to pepper grinders and used as a condiment when a more rounded, sweet spiciness is desired, grind on to vegetables prior to serving and add to soups, stews, marinades, rice, grains and curries. Use as you would black pepper in sweet recipes such as biscuits and cake; you can also use them to spice up fruit syrups, cordials, chutneys and pickles.
Shelf LifeShelf life of two years provided that goods are stored in an airtight container in ambient conditions.
