Our blend of black, white and pink peppercorns add an extra peppery flair to any dish. Pink peppercorns are actually berries of the Brazilian pepper tree and have a lighter flavor. Add the black and white peppercorns and you have a delicious blend of pepper spices.
Black pepper is produced from the still-green, unripe drupe of the pepper plant. The drupes are cooked briefly in hot water, both to clean them and to prepare them for drying. The heat ruptures cell walls in the pepper, speeding the work of browning enzymes during drying. The drupes dry in the sun or by machine for several days, during which the pepper skin around the seed shrinks and darkens into a thin, wrinkled black layer. Once dry, the spice is called black peppercorn.
