Long pepper (piper longum), is related to black pepper. The fragrance is delightfully sweet, floral and woody, the flavour numbingly hot and lingering, with a fruitiness reminiscent of hot chiles. Once popular and highly valued in European cuisine (Attila the Hun included long peppers in his ransom demands in the siege of Rome), its culinary use is now largely limited to Malaysia, Indonesia, India and North Africa. Long pepper is a wonderfully pleasant alternative to black pepper - difficult to grind (pepper mills won't work), but well worth the effort.
