Plant Based Single Origin Spice 
 

Indian Long Pepper
P. longum

Indian long pepper is referred to in early Sanskrit Vedas and is essential in Ayurvedic remedies thousands of years ago, and it is today. Once harvested green, and sundried – our long pepper becomes a dark brown to black with a rough-surfaced spike, like a flower catkin. They have a sweet, fragrant aroma like that of orris root with a bitingly hot, lingering numbing, belying its clean scent.

I use the long pepper in my Ayurvedic cooking class at the farm, and just one piece is essential in my chai and turmeric or golden milk to balance my dosha.

When I canned or pickled peaches, apples here in the Hudson Valley, I add a few – to my preserved lemons for that gentle kick to the palate.

    All of our Single–Origin herbs, spices, and handcrafted blends are the best way to add flavor to food for no extra calories, sugar, sodium, or other junk—which is critical to do when you're trying to lose weight or make that lifestyle shift towards wellness.

    Why? It's pretty simple: Research shows that if you don't like the taste of what you eat, you're much less likely to stick to any diet, no matter how disciplined you are. Herbs and spices add a significant amount of flavor to food and can turn, for example, that piece of plain chicken or vegetable into a restaurant-worthy meal, thanks to just a little pinch and dash of herbs and spices.

    Some studies show that eating foods seasoned with chili pepper or black pepper can boost metabolism by up to 23%. Black pepper has a compound called piperine, which means it binds to fats, and so when we cook with oils, the piperine binds to the oil and is more easily absorbed by our guts or digestive organs.
    When you eat a spicy dish, your body generates more heat, which, in turn, helps burn calories.
