Fermented White Pepper
Contrary to popular belief, white pepper is not interchangeable with black pepper. It has a distinct flavor profile that is essential in Cantonese and Southeast Asian dishes. Highly prized in Indonesia but rarely found in the US, they add a deep umami flavor and funk to everything they touch.
This Fermented White Pepper comes from a family farm on the island of Bangka. They're picked fresh and placed in open-air fermentation pools for two weeks, using the natural sugar in the peppercorn fruit to create a white pepper that's savory. Grind over steak to mimic the flavor of dry aging, over veggies for heat and depth.
