Kampot red pepper, originally from Cambodia , is a culinary treasure that has survived the centuries. Cultivated in the traditional way, this pepper is produced from ripe fruits that are first blanched in boiling water and then cooled in ice water . This unique processing method helps develop the rich, complex flavors for which Kampot pepper is renowned.      

Pepper cultivation in Cambodia, and particularly Kampot pepper, dates back to the 19th century . Cambodian producers have been able to preserve ancestral methods, and today, Kampot pepper benefits from a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) , guaranteeing its authenticity and superior quality. Red Kampot pepper is considered one of the best in the world, thanks to its fruity notes and moderate heat.      

In cooking, Kampot red is a versatile ingredient. It allows you to subtly enhance dishes and add a touch of exoticism. The recommendations for use are varied: it can be added at the end of cooking to preserve the aromas , or used in spice mixtures for marinades or sauces.   

Black Kampot and red share a common history, but the red has the particularity of being harvested around March , when the grains are at their peak of maturity. Producers use natural fertilizers and harvest the bunches by hand, thus ensuring impeccable quality.       

Kampot salt , often used in tandem with pepper, also contributes to the consumption of quality salt in the region. Together, they offer a natural solution to bad breath and are a pillar of Cambodian gastronomy.     

Kampot pepper develops a sustainable local economy and offers the world a glimpse of the richness of the Cambodian terroir.  Cultivated in  an eco-responsible manner, Kampot pepper is more than a spice; it is the reflection of a heritage and know-how that endures.

To roast Kampot Red Pepper , it is important to follow a few key steps to enhance its unique flavors. Here's a quick guide from my pepper roasting video: 

  1. Preparation  :

    • Select high quality Kampot Red Peppercorns .  
    • Make sure the beans are dry and clean.
  2. Roasting without oil  :

    • Heat a skillet over medium heat.
    • Add the peppercorns to the dry pan.
    • Roast them for 2 to 3 minutes . 
    • Stir constantly to avoid burning the grains.
    • The grains should begin to pop slightly, indicating they are ready.
  3. Cooling  :

    • Remove the grains from the pan and let them cool to room temperature.
    • Cooling allows the flavors to set.
  4. Crushing  :

    • Crush the roasted beans in a mortar to release the aromas.
    • Use immediately to season your dishes.

Roasting pepper allows the Maillard reaction to develop , which intensifies flavors by creating new aromatic molecules. This gives the pepper caramel notes and changes its color, while preserving its characteristic spiciness .  

Keep in mind that each variety of pepper may require slightly different roasting times. It is therefore essential to experiment and adjust the process according to your tastes and the type of pepper used.

Preparation and Care of the Land

Before harvesting red pepper, meticulous soil preparation work is necessary. Solid supports are installed so that the pepper vines can rise and flourish. Young plants require a regular supply of natural fertilizers and daily watering to thrive.

The Maturity of the Pepper Plant: A Fruitful Wait

You must wait until the third year for the pepper plant to reach maturity and begin to produce quality grains. The harvest, carried out manually, is done on plants aged 3 to 15 years. In Kampot, the harvest takes place between March and April, during which time the grains reach full maturity.

Why Red Pepper?

Red pepper is the result of complete maturation of the fruit of the pepper plant. It changes from green to yellow, then to bright red, a sign of perfect maturity. It is this maturation that makes Kampot red pepper so special: it is the most complex to cultivate and offers an unrivaled aromatic palette.

Kampot Pepper PGI: A Guarantee of Quality

The IGP (Protected Geographical Indication) label guarantees that Kampot pepper is grown using traditional methods, without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. This not only ensures the purity of the product but also respect for the environment.

Cambodian Pepper: A Treasure to Preserve
