Today’s spice is 「Black pepper」

Black pepper

Origin of black pepper is raised in warm places in southwestern India. It is said to be a vine plant growing up wrapped around trees and pillars. It is spice used not only in India, Chinese food, Japanese food and everywhere. An acquaintance said that it seems to be a “booger” as he sees a black fly, but how rude it is!
Black pepper is called King of Spices, although it is a spice that is loved and loved from all over the world.

Well, although it’s efficacy,

  • Taste: bitterness, pungent
  • Function: Warm body, sharpen thinking
  • Work: abdominal pain and indigestion, suppress diarrhea, relieve cold symptoms
  • VIPAKA (taste after digestion): pungent
  • VPK analysis: lower Kapha and Vata

And what a weak body, a spice without medicine even if you catch a cold.

Pepper was old spice of history, it was already taken around the 2nd century BC. At that time, it would have been a big role as a medicine rather than a spice. For medieval Europeans, it was a very valuable spice, so it was said that some of the toll was paid with pepper. Spice enough to replace currency. In the near future, black pepper may be substituted for virtual currency! What? Lol

Needless to say black pepper, compatibility with various dishes is good, but I would like to introduce here 「black pepper and ginger soup」. First of all, it is not Lulu, it’s Kore, ^^
While practicing South India, I caught a cold, but the doctor mixed the black pepper and ginger into hot water and gave it out and if I drank about 3 to 4 cups, I healed before cherishing, so the effect is correct.
