Fresh Salted Pepper (Kampot IGP) is an exclusive production of La Plantation. Addictive from the first corn, Fresh Salted Pepper is ready to eat. The privileged ones who had the chance to taste it become crazy and crunch it from the aperitif to the dessert.
For the 2018 harvest, we now offer another format that lends itself beautifully to gifts: the Krama pouch, containing 50g of pepper.
Fresh Salted Pepper is an exclusive production from La Plantation in Kampot.
The pepper clusters are harvested by hand before maturity. They are then manually treshed by our workers. These young green corns are very fragile and require careful treatment.
The corns are washed and blanched and undergo a complex process of fermentation with Kampot sea salt, developed by La Plantation. This fermentation reinforces the flavor that is like the fresh green pepper eaten fresh in Cambodia. Traditional recipes in Kampot and Kep region use a lot of fresh green pepper (Kep crab or prawns fried with green pepper, as well as many salads and local dishes). Green pepper cannot be kept fresh and must be eaten within 3 or 4 days.
The crispness of the grain and the intense explosion of fresh pepper flavors on the palate make La Plantation's Fresh Salted Pepper a unique product that is unanimous among those who have had the chance to taste it. Most of them have become big fans. It has already arrived at the menu of several Michelin star chefs and new cuisine chefs.
No need for a mill, Fresh Salted Pepper from La Plantation is ready to eat.
Addictive from the first corn, Fresh Salted Pepper can be crunched as an aperitif, alone or in accompaniment of grilled peanuts. We advise you not to cook it, just possibly heat it slightly at the end of cooking or in a sauce, so that it keeps its crunchy. It marvelously delights meats such as beef or duck and will surprise your guests in a chocolate mousse or on an ice-cream or seared fruit.
You can also sprinkle a few corns on your preparations, salads or oysters.
Fresh Salted Pepper is to be consumed without moderation!
The krama is a piece of cotton traditionally worn in Cambodia. The pattern, woven in a traditional way, is very simple, formed by the crossing of white bands and another color. The krama is worn indifferently by men, women and children. In everyday life, it has a multitude of functions: scarf, hammock, headgear, baby carrier, belt.
At La Plantation, our sewers start from krama scarves, cut and sew them into high-quality pouches. Each product of La Plantation is identified by its krama color. Here, we use a Grey and White krama to put Kampot White Peppercorns.
They are put in bags before being inserted into the krama pouch.
Once the package is opened, we recommend that you keep your Salted Kampot Peppercorns in a cool, dry place, away from light and moisture, so that it retains all its flavor and aroma.
