Muntok white pepper, famous for its fiery flavor and wild character, is grown using ancestral methods on the Indonesian island of Bangka. It owes its name to the town of Muntok, which is not far from the harvesting sites.

This pepper comes from piper nigrum, a climbing plant which gives rise to splendid berries. 

On the heights surrounding Muntok, local farmers harvest these grains every year; you should know that there is no mechanized pepper harvest. Even in Brazil we have never seen one.

The pepper is harvested when fully ripe.

The grains are then immersed in water to remove their outer skin, then returned to the ground to remove the last fragments. After a wash, they are exposed to the sun until they acquire their iconic white hue.

Historically, Muntok white pepper was introduced to Europe from Indonesia by Arab merchants who used it as a commercial currency, and by Vasco da Gama who discovered its taste qualities. In gastronomy, this pepper is prized for its wild aromas and its pronounced fragrance, which give dishes a subtle and refined touch. It is particularly recommended for seasoning foie gras, seafood, vegetable stir-fries and even chocolate desserts.
