Binh Duong is a province adjacent to Ho Chi Minh City. There are a few small farmers of long pepper concentrated in the area. This pepper is harvested at its most ripe, when it is red in colour.
Its level of ripening gives it very hot, sweet notes with a dominant fig, date and honey, tobacco leaf and saffron note, with a very marked woody side with a peak of liquorice. It evokes pastries fresh out of the oven and gingerbread. Once ground it looks and behaves like a very beautiful Espelette chilli.

Watch out - despite its sweet, delicious notes, this pepper has a sharp bite, more like a chilli than a pepper.
Finely ground, ideally with a very fine grater, use it on fish, crustaceans and scallops. Also on pizza, eggs, rice and pasta products. On poultry and white meats. And in citrus or pineapple desserts. It works well with chocolate desserts.
Broken into pieces with your fingers, it will enhance your marinades and sauces.
