In the Middle Ages, a very specific type of pepper was used, made from a shrub with white or purple flowers, which was widespread mainly in the Mediterranean region. Its name comes from the fact that in the Middle Ages it was used to flavor monks’ soup in monasteries for its anaphrodisiac properties.

Sweeter than black pepper, it releases a bitterness that is valued today for spicing many culinary preparations!

On the palate, the monks’ pepper is quite subtle and releases some discreet floral notes. It goes very well with meat and poultry, but can be used in a more original way on desserts.

In a fruit salad, for example, we appreciate this spicy note that surprises the palate. In general, you can try adding pepper to different sweet preparations-the result will be pleasantly surprising!
