Black Peppercorns

Available in 200g Resealable Bag

    Bold, pungent flavour with distinctive heat. The king of spices, with a deep history and once traded as a currency.

    Suggested Uses

    Black Pepper adds spicy heat and bold flavour to enhance any savoury dish.

    It is the most popular spice and is used as a seasoning worldwide.

    To maintain the delicate flavours, I recommend grinding and adding pepper just before serving or as a garnish.

    Try ground on fresh sliced strawberries to add a spicy flavour.

    The Variety

    The cured, unripe berries of a flowering tropical vine, Piper nigrum, native to South India and widely cultivated throughout the tropics.
    They are steam sterilised, which is a natural method of eliminating bugs & controlling microbial activity etc., rather than gas or irradiation.

    For Your Appreciation

    I have specially selected these black peppercorns for their distinctly bold flavour and aroma. They contain no additives or preservatives, and are steam treated as a more natural alternative to irradiation or gas treatment.

    Pepper is the most widely used seasoning in the world, used since ancient times when it was traded as a currency. It adds exotic flavour and aroma to almost any dish.
