Your performance

White kampot pepper is a mild Kampot, ideal for lovers of French cuisine. The aroma is slightly citrus-like. This pepper is protected by Europe with the PDO label (PGI) 

Kampot pepper, called Mrech Kampot in Khmer, is named after a place and region in the south of Cambodia, now a popular travel destination: Kampot. The peppers come from small-leaved pepper plants of the Piper variety Lampong (such as the white muntok) or large-leaved plants of the Kamchay variety. Lampong peppers bear somewhat smaller berries than most pepper varieties, often of different sizes mixed together.

The white Kampot pepper is made in the classic way from the ripe berry. After the peppercorns have been soaked in fresh water for several days, the skin is removed. As a result, the aromas in the peel no longer play a role, making the flavor palette of the core more pronounced, hence the light citrus note, for example. This makes this white pepper very suitable for fish and shellfish such as oysters. Also a great pepper for a béchamel sauce.

Kampot pepper is sometimes called the world's best pepper, a reputation that was built wd in Indochinese times, when the Cambodian pepper was the star of every self-respecting French restaurant. Kampot is included in the 'Ark of taste'.

Our Kampot peppers come from one of the many family businesses with a pepper plantation. These belong to farmers who started growing pepper instead of rice again after the fall of the Khmer Rouge and the withdrawal of the Vietnamese. Because the Khmer Rouge had focused all their efforts on rice cultivation, the cultivation of pepper in Cambodia was banned and therefore virtually lost.

The pepper is cultivated in a centuries-old waywd. The land is still irrigated in the traditional way, without the use of pesticides. Only natural raw materials from plants and crayfish are used to fertilize the land, which are widely found on the many rice paddies in the area.

Why not organic?

The reason for that is quite simple. The majority of the almost 350 family businesses in Cambodia that grow pepper in accordance with European protection rules are unable to meet the requirements of international organic standards, at least not without making major investments. Even though there is the option of micro-credit, this is not a feasible option for most family businesses. Most organic Kampot therefore comes from some larger companies.

In addition to the protected Kampot pepper, you have recently seen more and more pepper being offered on the European market that comes from this region, but outside the quality control of the Kampot Pepper Association.

Use

Because white pepper releases its fragrant aromas when heated, add it at the end to the preparation of stocks and white sauces. The pepper combines excellently with crustaceans and white fish.
