Travel to the foothills of the Himalayas in Nepal and you will find one of the rarest peppers in the world - the Grapefruit Mountain Pepper
The bushes can grow up to 5 meters high, grow wild and are laboriously harvested by a local village cooperative
After harvesting, the collected berries are dried in special drying houses. Botanists disagree as to whether grapefruit mountain pepper belongs to the laurel family or the rue family, while the scientists figure out the ancestry of this plant we get to enjoy it in our cooking today
The pepper combines unique aromas of grapefruit, lime, lemon balm and pomelo with subtle to mild pungency bitter notes.
The mountain pepper should always be freshly ground or mortared.
It is also recommended to add the pepper to the food only at the end of the preparation
Superb in anything you like pepper in, really good with Fish, poultry, seafood, desserts, fruits, cakes & pastries, seasoning blends.
