Tiny black-brown peppercorns that have a strong scent and a milder pepper flavor, the Lampong Peppercorn, or Piper nigrum are grown in Indonesia and are popular in specialty cooking from around the world.
Whole peppercorns are full of delicious flavor and hold onto that flavor for longer than ground peppercorns would. We recommend that you grind the peppercorns as you need them for a recipe rather than grinding a bunch at once. These peppercorns have a particularly delicate flavor.
Lampong peppercorns have a sharp, lingering heat and have a beautiful aroma that is described as both citrusy and piney. The heat takes a few seconds to hit, but it is a truly delightful experience.
