Zizira Honey is pure, natural, raw and unprocessed. It has been tested free of artificial additives, coloring or preservative. It’s color & flavor depends directly on the source (wildflowers in this case) of the nectar.

Obtained from the traditional beekeepers of Meghalaya with years of indigenous knowledge, Zizira’s pure wildflower honey (multiflora honey) is made from sun-soaked pollen and nectar collected by bees in the summer months.

What’s special about Long Pepper?

Piper Longum, as it is referred to, or Long Pepper, is different from black pepper. In fact, dried long pepper looks a little like dried green chilli.

It grows in a creeper and is cultivated in Meghalaya in the Cherrapunji region.

The unique chemical composition of this plant extends its utility beyond the culinary to curative. The roots and thicker parts of stem of long pepper are cut and dried and used as an important drug (Piplamool or Pippali) in the Ayurvedic and Unani systems. Research shows that piper longum is useful for liver and spleen ailments, for diabetes, for stomach problems and toothaches.

In the northeast India it is also used to spice up pickles and preserves, giving them a distinctive aroma and flavour.

What’s special about Bird Eye Chilli?

Bird’s eye chilli is treasured for its unique pungency and spiciness. The chilli gets its name from its petite size and a shape which is similar to a bird’s eye. It is long, slender and tapering!

Bird’s eye chilli is believed to have a high capsaicin content which is responsible for its pungency. Capsaicin present in chilli binds with the receptors in the mouth. These receptors are responsible for sensing the heat, leading to a burning sensation. But, people tend to love it once they get used to it!

The way it is most relished in Meghalaya is in its pickled form where additional spices like Fenureek, Fennel Seed, Black cumin seed, Mustard seeds and Bishop Weed seeds are blended in. The pickle looks visually very appealing and it adds a great punch to salads too.
