Black Pepper is made from undersize Green Peppercorns. The Green Peppercorns, which are the unripe fruit from the Piper Nigrum tree, are picked in an immature state and then dried. Black Peppercorns are rather mild but they are intensely fragrant. Pepper is one of the most common spices in the world. Its popularity is due not only to its versatility as a cooking spice but also because of its healing properties Pepper is believed to help cure colds, sore throats and to be helpful with respiratory problems.
Suggested Use: Our half-cracked Peppercorn gives off a warm and spicy flavor and it adds a depth to any dish. Pepper combines well with just about any spice. Cracked Peppercorns are wonderful sprinkled on top of salads, pasta, cooked vegetables or sauces. Cracked Peppercorns are wonderful rubbed into meat before grilling or used primarily by butchers in certain meat blends.
Basic Preparations: Pepper is best when ground fresh just before use. Another option is to tie peppercorns in a cheese cloth bag and drop into a simmering soup or stew. Remove spice bag before serving. Pepper loses its flavor during long-cooking periods, so add at the end.
