PEPPERCORN - BLACK
BLACK PEPPERCORNS are known in India as the King of Spices. Black pepper is produced from the green unripe berries of the pepper plant. The berries are cooked briefly in hot water, both to clean them and to prepare them for drying. The berries are dried in the sun or by machine for several days, during which time the fruit around the seed shrinks and darkens into a thin, wrinkled black layer around the seed. Once dried, the fruits are called black peppercorns. Our peppercorns have a lot of peperine in the dried black pericap. Try it on strawberries!
SMOKED BLACK PEPPERCORNS are an interesting addition to any spice cupboard. They have a delightful smokiness layered on top of a fruity, citrus, spiciness. They can be used for salad dressings, in soups, in chilis or stews, and also on creamy pasta!
