Black pepper is the second most used spice in the world after salt, and is a fundamental ingredient in all cuisines around the world. The history of this spice goes back millennia – peppercorns were even found by archaeologists stuffed in mummies’s nostrils – , and it was once so valuable that a king’s ransom could to be paid with peppercorns! Lampong peppercorns are high-quality Indonesian peppercorns that are picked immediately after they ripen, and because they are not allowed to mature on the vine they are slightly smaller, but carry more sharpness and heat compared to other varieties. Put the peppercorns in a pepper mill to have freshly ground pepper every time a recipe calls for it, or for table use. Whole peppercorns can also be used for preparations that require long simmering, such as bone broth, or you can crack them with mortar and pestle for a classic steak au poivre.
