Strawberry-Fennel Salad with Long Pepper
Long pepper has a bit more heat than traditional black peppercorns, but its heat brings with it complex spice overtones and a mellow, woody base flavor. Beyond the heat, you may detect hints nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger. While those might be thought of baking spices in the west, in other parts of the world such as India, they are the key spices in many spice blends, or masalas, used for savory purposes. Long Pepper pairs well with all sorts of meats, many vegetables, stews, even spicy, fruity dessert dish. While you can infuse its flavor by using it whole in a stew or slow roasted lamb dish, it typically is ground before using, much like black pepper, to bring out its essential oils and flavors. Long pepper can be used in most peppermills that grind black pepper. We suggest snapping the long pepper into smaller pieces first or using the heel of a chef’s knife to cut them into small coins before loading them into the mill. Ingredients: Long pepper.

I ground them and then we use in recipes calling for pepper. Our family likes the extra kick they give.
Love the spice the flavors but are a bit hard to grind. possibly need new grinder!!!
I use them all the time.
I've seen these in a few recipe videos and wanted to give it a try and wow, I may never go back to regular black pepper. It's hotter and has some floral notes, plus it looks so cool! Definitely recommend these.
Read about long pepper recently, and wanted to try. Though it's hard to grind the peppers, the additional flavor makes it well worth it. This is the only pepper I'll ever use in gravy, stews, Alfredo and several other dishes. Definitely recommend having a mortar and pestle on hand to grind the peppers.
