Peppercorns are one of the most commonly used spices; in fact, they account for 25 percent of all of the global spice trade. They are the berry of the plant Piper Nigrum. India is the largest producer of the world’s pepper in addition to Brazil, Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia. The first documentation of the Peppercorn use is found in South Asia, from the 4th century BCE. Black Peppercorns are fermented, dried Green Peppercorns. They have a crisp and aromatic flavor. They have the most robust flavor of all Peppercorns.
Black Peppercorns are versatile and easy to use. Add them whole, crushed or ground for extra snap in your favorite recipes calling for pepper. Use to create Sauces, Marinades, Vinaigrettes and Creamy Salad Dressings.
