Organic red pepper from the Bolaven plateau
The grains are harvested at perfect maturity, sporting an orange to deep red color.
The pulp is then full of sugar. The grains are very fragile and must be handled by expert hands. Drying is long, in the shade, so that the heat does not alter the pericarp of the kernels.
More on the Peppers of the Bolaven Plateau : The Bolaven Plateau, Sekong province, South Laos, nestled at an altitude of 650 meters, benefits from a volcanic soil rich in nutrients, ideal for the cultivation of a quality pepper.
Our farmer has developed a pepper plantation favoring traditional methods that respect people and the environment without the slightest use of chemicals, pesticides or fungicides. The farm is exclusively dedicated to organic farming.
Harvests are exclusively manual, with specific degrees of maturity depending on the quality of pepper sought. The peppercorns are dried in the shade to preserve their plant essence and essential oil.
Drying is slow to allow the beans to exhale the most subtle aromas.
We finish refining the grains in our cellar, under controlled temperature and humidity in order to enhance them.
Our perfect pairings : We recommend this pepper, ground to serve, for red meats, duck, game, foie gras, fatty fish and cephalopods, abalone, shrimp, pan-fried apples.
