      Long Pepper

      $8.25

      Although you won't find long pepper in too many recipes, it's worth trying for a twist on your everyday black pepper. The heat of long pepper is slow and lingering, rather than a quick punch. Its flavor has sweet hints of nutmeg and cinnamon.

      Pair it with asparagus, mushrooms or on strawberries or mango. Crush it in a mortar and pestle, grate it with a Microplane or grind it in a sturdy pepper grinder.

      "As a vegetarian, counteracting blandness is what led me to Oaktown Spice in the first place. I make a satay sauce by combining peanut butter and coconut milk, but my secret ingredient is long pepper. Long pepper has a lasting heat that changes on its journey over my tongue. It’s a hot bite at first that ends with a brighter, citrusy taste. It sure saves my sauce from becoming boring, and it plays nicely with many additional ingredients." - Mayona's Staff Picks, 2021

      Oaktown Spice Shop has been in the Adams Point neighborhood for nine years. They focus on sourcing the absolute best-tasting version of each individual spice, then grind the spices themselves, in their shop. This means the ground spices customers find at Oaktown are bursting with flavor and are far fresher than those found elsewhere.
