Soft on the outside and very hard on the inside

Okay, very hard is over the top. But thanks to their maximum ripening time, the red pepper fruits have a completely developed core that is so full of oils and aromas. And it delivers just a bit more bite than you know it from the mini-core, which is equipped with the much younger brother, the "Green Fermented Kampot Pepper".

Again, from the beginning: We are in shock love in these juicy, plump, drawn by fermentation aroma pearls with the pronounced sharpness. The sea salt-coated pulp is peppered with pepper juices, tastes sour-sweetish, reminiscent of rosehip, orange peel and the umami richness of dried tomatoes. The as mentioned crisp core then provides the perfect Pfeffrigkeit and overruns you with ethereal, reminiscent of pine needles taste and strong sharpness.

our recommendation

The fermented red pepper tastes exceptionally well with mushrooms, wild sauces, steak, lamb, pork tenderloin, pumpkin, duck, goose, various terrines and in combination with strong cheeses such as Gorgonzola or Roquefort. Imagine a mushroom risotto, a duck breast with honey and rosemary sauce, a beef carpaccio or a pancake with pear and gorgonzola. Just the thought of it makes us very nervous.

Crush the pepper with the flat side of the knife and chop it roughly. That's how it works well. All its splendor comes to light when used after cooking.

How the fermented red Kampot pepper is made

The red, fully ripe pepper fruits are removed by the addition of salt pepper juices. Excluded from oxygen, the secondary plant substances (phenols) ferment with the help of microorganisms that are already on the pepper plant. The salt and the controlled fermentation process make the food durable. But not only that, the taste also changes. The sweetish aromas of red pepper are complemented by a salty and an acidic component. There are also other flavors that are created by the conversion of phytochemicals.

Fermentation. A very old topic, which is totally in fashion again. Rightly, because fermentation is a really nice thing. It preserves food in a natural way, adds a new facet to its taste and produces bacteria that are good for our intestines. It is a tradition and old craft from a time when you did not know refrigerators.
