Peperomia

Botanical name: Peperomia inaequalifolia

Peperomia inaequalifolia è una varietà perenne originaria del Sud America. Poco conosciuta nel mondo, la Peperomia è conosciuta e viene utilizzata principalmente in Perù, Cile, Ecuador e soprattutto nelle isole Canarie.

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.
