Organic Black Peppercorns
Organic Peppercorns - Black is one of the world's most used spices and is often referred to as the "king of spice." These whole peppercorns are actually berries obtained from the pepper plant. The berries are picked when they are half ripe and just about to turn red, then left to dry which causes them to shrivel and become dark in colour.
Black peppercorns have the strongest pepper taste of all peppercorns, and when freshly ground they add both heat and a depth of flavour to any savoury dish.
Black pepper is a versatile spice that can be used in all types of savoury cooking including seasonings, curries, gravies and sauces. To retain the flavour and aroma, ground the pepper corns just before preparing dishes or add just prior to serving. Freshly ground black pepper adds a delicious aromatic bite to any dish!
