Botanical name: Peperomia inaequalifolia
Peperomia inaequalifolia is a perennial native to South America. Little known in the world, the Peperomia is known and is used primarily in Peru, Ecuador and Chile, especially in the Canary Islands.
The young leaves are distinctly spicy aroma and additionally for the aftertaste aroma of cinnamon. Not surprisingly in the Canary Islands, where the Peperomia is grown as plants for balconies, it is sold in local markets as "Canelo" or "cinnamon".
The foliage can be used to flavor meat, fish, vegetables, rice and even, given the sweetest note, desserts.
