What is Chocolate pepper, where does it come from, and is it made from chocolate?

Chocolate Pepper is an exceptional pepper from India and is also sometimes known under the name "small long pepper." As the name suggests, Chocolate pepper looks similar to the long pepper but is just a tiny bit smaller. 

Chocolate pepper is not made from chocolate but has a subtle chocolate flavor and smell. This pepper is primal, and due to its chocolatey notes, it is unique in taste and valued by chefs worldwide.

Chocolate pepper is found both in India and Nepal. It has a delicious blend of spicy and fresh notes, which makes it an excellent addition to every gourmet chef's kitchen. In addition, this pepper has a slight anesthetic reaction inside your mouth, making the cooking and dining experience even more enjoyable.

How to cook with Chocolate Pepper? 

Besides the chocolate notes, this pepper has a slightly numbing effect on the tongue, stimulating saliva flow and intensifying aromas.

This makes the Chocolate pepper an ideal match with meat, vegetables, desserts, and dishes with fruit. It can be crushed, cooked whole, or mortared. It contrasts tender fish or even sweet desserts and fruits, making your dishes very exciting.

This unique pepper will offer your dishes a pepperier flavor than ever. It will look great sprinkled on top of any dish when freshly ground. Just add in appropriate amounts.

Kitchen life hack: Before using the Chocolate Pepper, pound it in a mortar and pestle rather than grinding it in a pepper mill. Grinding it in a pepper mill will kill the chocolatey notes. 

A fun recipe to try with our Chocolate Pepper: 

Summer Grilled Veggie Tacos with Strawberry Salsa and Chocolate Pepper

This is the ideal recipe for a quick and light dinner in the summer. It is easy to make and tastes fantastic while introducing fun flavors that the Chocolate Pepper brings. 


You will need:

For tacos:

  • Pack of tacos
  • 1 zucchini thinly sliced lengthwise
  • a large bundle of asparagus
  • 5 mini sweet bell peppers
  • 2 avocados
  • A handful of cherry tomatoes
  • goat cheese
  • veggie marinade
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of chili powder
  • ½ tsp of cumin
  • ½ tsp of cayenne
  • the juice of one lime
  • Our Sweet Salt
  • Our Chocolate Pepper

For the strawberry salsa:

  • 2 cups of fresh strawberries
  • 1 small red onion
  • ¼ cup of fresh basil
  • ½ jalapeno
  • juice of half a lime
  • splash of olive oil
  • Our Sweet Salt
  • Our Chocolate Pepper

Time to cook:

  • Firstly mix up the marinade ingredients and set them aside to wait.
  • Secondly, cut the strawberries and chop the onion into small pieces, mince the basil and jalapeno, and add everything into a small bowl. 
  • Then it is time to juice half a lime and add a splash of olive oil and our Sweet salt and Chocolate pepper (take this part slowly, as you need to adjust the amount of spices to your liking! Don't be afraid to taste it and add whatever feels right!), drizzle over the strawberry mixture and place salsa in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • Then thinly slice the zucchini and add to a bowl with the asparagus and whole peppers. 
  • Place the vegetables on a grill and drizzle with the marinade. The peppers should go on the grill first because they take the longest to obtain the desired char on medium/low heat. 
  • Add the zucchini and asparagus when the peppers are almost done cooking (5-8 minutes), as they will only need a few minutes on each side.
  • Then, begin assembling your tacos by warming them on the grill. Add some grilled vegetables (slice the peppers after they have charred on the grill), strawberry salsa, a few slices of avocado, some chopped cherry tomatoes, a sprinkle of goat cheese, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice before serving.

Enjoy! :)
