I give up! I confess ! I am a spice nerd! It’s just that I ‘m completely sold on the spices. And this has been going on for many years but it is only now that I recognize this. And the wonderful thing is that there are always new spices to discover! My wonderful shop Duå that helps me in my gluttony. Have realized that I have no exciting new spices to exprementera with, I get abstinence symptoms. Please, readers, if your country has a special or unique spice, contact me!
Realized that I had probably also make a special section with just the right spices here on the blog. Please folks, you have to be patient . Meanwhile, as I write there. As soon as I have time I’ll fix an entire department with them here on my site.
Yesterday I met another dear friend from Madagascar, Wild Pepper Voatsiperifery also known as Piper borbonense. WOW what a season! It is like no other of its relatives. Yes it is an expensive spice if you compare to its other relatives. But it tastes amazing! Much more dynamic and complex flavor than black and white pepper. It grows high up on the freshest branches, about 20 m high. So they are really not easy to get to pick. It is in 10 kg of fresh berries to get 1 kg of dried peppercorns. As you see in the picture, it has a special appearance with his little tail. I use mortar to crush them and add the spice just before serving for the flavor to come out the best. Many recipes will now come forward the next couple of days.
