Kanata can help spice up your dishes with Poivre Crispé (Green Alder) from Gaspésie Sauvage. A variation on traditional pepper with spring aromas of flowers and resin, with a touch of bitterness as an after taste.
Strictly speaking, the poivre crispé, gathered during spring then dried, is not a pepper, since it’s lamb’s tail, the fruit of a tree that only grows in the northern hemisphere.
Quickly placed in a mill just before serving, the Poivre Crispé or Green Alder is also added as whole berries to a simmered dish like a bourguignon or a colombo (but remember to remove them before serving).
