Kampot pepper is a rare peppercorn from Southern Cambodia. After the commercial pepper farming industry was destroyed during the Khmer Rouge genocide, wild pepper was rediscovered in the forests of Kampot and brought back into cultivation. This region is now protected by a Geographic Designation of Origin by the European Union, to ensure that this pepper is grown organically and to the highest standards of quality.
This blend combines Kampot black pepper and traditional Cambodian flavors with Maine Sea salt to make a bright, refreshing blend perfect for tossing with vegetables, adding to dressing, rubbing into meat (such as steak) or for sprinkling on seafood after cooking. Featured onSaveur's listof favorite lunch condiments, Kampot & Salt also makes a lovely salt rim for margaritas!
